as wine stands time

1 oz Rittenhouse Rye
1 oz Cynar
1 oz Bonal Gentiane-Quina

Stir with ice, strain into a rocks glass, and garnish with grapefruit oil from a twist.
Two Saturdays ago, I decided to make another recipe that I had spotted that week on Kindred Cocktails called As Wine Stands Time; the recipe was attributed to Kirk Estopinal of New Orleans' Cure via a 2014 eGullet thread. The combination reminded me of the Midnight Maurader with rye instead of mezcal and mole bitters as well as the Bicycle Thief minus the sweet vermouth as well as different proportions. Here, the As Wine Stands Time kicked things off with grapefruit and dark caramel aromas. Next, caramel and grape notes on the sip transitioned into rye and funky herbal flavors on the swallow.
