Serious Eats: Recipes
Cynar is a perfect stand-in for Fernet Branca, another darling of the amari, in a Toronto cocktail. Like Fernet, the bitter, vegetal taste of Cynar is a perfect foil for the sweet rye. I used Rittenhouse Rye 100 proof here, which is an affordable and good (but not too good to mix) rye.
Note: To make simple syrup, combine 1 cup water with 1 cup sugar in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Cool before using. Simple syrup will keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
