My New Favorite Cynar Drink: The Search for Delicious

Drinks Maggie Hoffman Post a comment

The combination is simple: Cynar and Punt e Mes, a little lemon juice and orange bitters, finished with salt on top of the ice. The mixture is rich, at times sweet and others tart and sometimes tongue-curlingly bitter. More

San Francisco: Snapshots from Choke, a Cynar and Artichoke Pop-Up Dinner

Drinks Lauren Sloss 2 comments

For Morgan Schick and Eric Quilty, creating food-and-cocktail pairings was always part of the game plan. Schick (of the Mission's Trick Dog) and Quilty (of East Bay Spice Company) banded together in 2010 to form Jupiter Olympus, a cocktail consulting group. At Choke, an artichoke-themed dinner hosted by Cynar, they paired 5 cocktails with food from Chris Kronner of Kronnerburger and Kevin Cimino of St. Vincent. More

The Bitter Mimosa

Serious Eats Autumn Giles 1 comment

Cynar Toronto

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. More

Tippling With Tea: 3 Tea-Based Cocktails to Make at Home

Drinks Autumn Giles 5 comments

I'm definitely prone to focus too much on the utilitarian side of tea. I sip English Breakfast to wake up and turn to my favorite echinacea infusion not because I especially enjoy the taste, but because I've convinced myself that if I drink enough of it, a winter cold won't last as long. But tea also offers a myriad of flavors: there's rich, earthy pu-ehr, grassy and bittersweet green teas, malty black teas, smoky and bacony Lapsang souchong, not to mention the wide range of herbal options available. In an infusion, a syrup, or a straight-up brew, tea goes way beyond function and brings delicious and complex flavors to these 3 super-simple cocktails. More

Gramercy Tavern's Man About Town

Serious Eats Maryse Chevriere Post a comment

This cocktail from Gramercy Tavern is a take on a Boulevardier (which is like a Negroni, but with bourbon in stead of gin). Here, however, spicy rye is the star, complemented by the delicately bitter Sicilian amaro, Cynar. More

The fruity flavor of fresh nectarine is enhanced with Combier Peche liqueur in this cocktail from Back 40 West in New York. More

Presbyterian Revenge

Serious Eats The Serious Eats Team Post a comment

So named because it makes use of a liqueur from Italy, a Catholic nation; it's an intensely bitter drink of Black Grouse shaken with the artichoke liqueur, lemon, and a sparing splash of simple syrup More
