Cardamaro Concord Cocktail

[Photograph: Autumn Giles]

Cardamaro is a relatively mild, sweet amaro made from wine infused with cardoon and blessed thistle. Paired with robust bourbon and bright, fresh Concord grape puree, it makes for an ideal drink to usher in fall.

Note: Freeze any unused portion of the concord puree for longer-term storage. 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.
