Two Cynar Negronis, minimalist style

Italian amaros, or bitters, hold a special place in the world of cocktails. They add class and complexity and come with a sense of mystery and intrigue. Their exact formulas are held under lock and key and passed down like family heirlooms. The Cynar Negroni is a testament to this legacy, and it might just be the most intriguing amaro of them all.  

First made in 1952, the rich brown elixir is a blend of 13 herbs and spices, which include artichoke leaves. It’s bittersweet and rich in earthy character, with notes of caramel and toffee and a strong herbal finish. When paired with the zest of gin and the sweet, spicy character of sweet vermouth, a special Negroni is born. It’s smooth and inviting, leaving you with a lingering aftertaste that is mysteriously pleasant and utterly unique.
