This drink was created by Sam Ross while at Milk and Honey in NYC. The credit should be given to him, not Pollack.

My favorite cocktail this year. Equal amounts of ingredients makes it easy to make - and therefore deadly!
This is my absolute favorite cocktail. I have tried several different Amaro's and Amaro Montenegro is my favorite pairing. Amaro Nonino is also great though! Perfectly refreshing and complex. If you're looking for a drink that tastes clearly of bourbon, this is not it. I love bourbon but I would say this drink focuses more on the aperitif/deigestifs.
Delicious EXACTLY s the recipe suggests. Wouldn’t change a thing!
I will look for variations to this recipe. It felt like too much lemon juice and too much amaro and aperol. A bit too acidic and bitter. Maybe more bourbon!
One of my favorites. For those, like me who are having a terrible time finding Nonino, I can highly recommend Amaro Amorino from Letterpress Distilling in Seattle as a substitute.
Thoughts on subbing tequila and like for the bourbon and lemon?
