the clyde

2 oz Mezcal (Fidencio)
3/4 oz Luxardo Amaro Abano
1/2 oz Cynar

Stir with ice, strain into a rocks glass, and (optional) garnish with a crack/pinch of black pepper.
Two Tuesdays ago, I delved into the Kindred Cocktails database and spotted the Clyde by New York City bartender Rafa Garcia Febles circa 2013. The pairing of mezcal with Amaro Abano called out to me for it worked well in the Speaking in Tongues. Once prepared, the Clyde generated a caramel, smoke, vegetal, and black pepper aroma. Next, the caramel from the two amari filled the sip, and the swallow followed through with smoky agave, vegetal, and black pepper flavors.
