(So named because it makes use of Cynar from Italy, a Catholic nation.) It's a refreshing and bitter drink of Black Grouse Scotch shaken with the artichoke liqueur, lemon, and a sparing splash of simple syrup. The grapefruit really comes through—you might think there's juice in it—but it's just the oils and bitters, resulting in a grapefruity cocktail that's not at all juicelogged. Great for fans of bitters who want something a little smoother than an aperitif on the rocks.
