Tobacco Road

Serious Eats Nick Caruana Post a comment

Pairing smoky mezcal with briny sherry and vegetal Cynar makes for one tasty drink with a great tobacco-laced scent. A pinch of salt and a grapefruit twist help bring out the flavors. More

The Bitter Mimosa

Serious Eats Autumn Giles 1 comment

There's serious potential for the mimosa outside of girly-drink territory. With a base of grapefruit juice and sparkling wine, this drink becomes much more complex and savory with a dose of Cynar. More

Cynar Toronto

Serious Eats Autumn Giles Post a comment

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

Cynar Iced Tea

Serious Eats Autumn Giles Post a comment

A super drinkable and surprisingly refreshing iced tea with a bitter kick that's easily scaled up to fill a pitcher. 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

This boozy yet balanced drink from Rickhouse Bar in San Francisco has hints of tobacco, smoke, and apple. More

This drink was developed by Cocktail 101 columnist Michael Dietsch and shared on his blog A Dash of Bitters. It's a complex, brooding spin on the Margarita that incorporates Cynar, rhubarb bitters, and orange flower water. More

Time for a Drink: The Trident

Serious Eats Paul Clarke Post a comment

The Negroni is a classic cocktail composed of equal parts gin, sweet vermouth and Campari. The Trident takes the same formula, but swaps out each of the ingredients. In place of the herbaceous character of gin, the Trident uses the cumin-and-caraway flavors of aquavit ; sweet vermouth is replaced with the nuttiness of dry sherry; and for the bitter edge, Cynar takes the place of Campari.

Eeyore's Requiem from The Violet Hour

Serious Eats Maggie Hoffman 5 comments

If you sat around naming all the bitter ingredients in your liquor cabinet, you might come close to the formula for this Anti-Valentine's Day tipple. Eeyore's Requiem, invented by Toby Maloney of Chicago's Violet Hour, starts with Campari, then adds a dose of barrel-aged Fernet Branca, which is made with gentian, chamomile, bitter orange, myhrr, and saffron, among other things. Not bitter enough for your cynical heart? Maloney takes your Fernet and your Campari and raises you a quarter ounce of artichoke-and-herb based Cynar. Take that, Valentine's day. More
