unfinished business

1 1/2 oz Beefeater Gin
3/4 oz Bonal Gentiane Quina
3/4 oz Cocchi Americano

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a cherry (Woodford).
Two Tuesdays ago, I finally got around to replacing my empty bottle of Bonal, and I sought out a use for my purchase. On Kindred Cocktails, I uncovered a 2016 creation by New York City bartender Rafa Garcia Febles called Unfinished Business as a sort of Martini riff. In the glass, it provided a pine and plum aroma. Next, plum, peach, and grapefruit notes on the sip closed out to gin, red fruit, peach, and quinine flavors on the swallow.
