klaus kinski

3/4 oz Rittenhouse Rye
3/4 oz Appleton Estate V/X Rum (Appleton Selection)
3/4 oz Amaro Nardini
3/4 oz Campari

Stir with ice, strain into a double old fashioned glass with a large ice cube, and garnish with an orange twist.
Two Wednesdays ago, I was perusing the Kindred Cocktails database when I came across NYC bartender Rafa Garcia Febles' 2014 tribute to actor Klaus Kinski. The structure reminded me of the Barefoot in the Dark, and Campari and Amaro Nardini have co-starred together in a few recipes including the Six Inch Gold Blade, Gianopulos, and Host Body. Once prepared, the Klaus Kinski showcased an orange and caramel aroma. Next, the caramel continued into the sip where it mingled with a toffee note, and the swallow rose with rye, rum, toffee, and bitter orange flavors.
