Black Walnut Social

While this recipe calls for a specific amaro (a hard to find one, at that), it serves as a great template for experimentation. Find an amaro or herbal liqueur that you really like and pair it with a nice mild gin. Your selection will entirely determine the character of this drink.

A combination I've been using lately is Mojave High Desert Gin and Calasaya Liqueur.

  • 2 oz gin
  • 1 oz Cardamaro Amaro or other herbal liqueur
  • 3 dashes black walnut bitters
  • garnish: orange twist

Stir well with plenty of ice. Strain into a rocks glass with fresh ice.

Garnish with an orange twist.
