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.
