as one does

1 1/2 oz Cynar
1/2 oz Blanco Tequila (Cimarron)
1/2 tsp Fernet Branca
1 dash Bittermens Mole Bitters
5 leaf Mint

Build in a glass (I muddled the mint), fill with crushed ice, and swizzle to mix and chill. Garnish with a mint sprig.
Two Tuesdays ago, I spotted the As One Does by Joaquin Simo on Kindred Cocktails. This Pouring Ribbons 2013 creation made me think of the Cynar Julep but with tequila, Fernet, and chocolate bitters accents. Once prepared, the As One Does greeted the nose with mint aromas over caramel and herbal notes. Next, the caramel continued on into the sip where it was chased by minty, herbal, and menthol flavors.
