mad max

1 oz Rye Whiskey (Rittenhouse)
1 oz Cynar
1 oz Aperol

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with an orange twist.
Two Saturdays ago, I spotted the Mad Max on Kindred Cocktails that was crafted at Kingfish in New Orleans circa 2016. Given that the Cynar-Aperol duo has been a win before in the Rucola Negroni, Juan Bautista, and The Scottish Play, I was game to give this rye drink a spin. Here, the Mad Max met the nose with an orange, caramel, fruity, and herbal bouquet. Next, caramel and orange notes on the sip fled into rye, funky herbal, and bitter orange flavors on the swallow.
