Artichoke Hold

Artichoke Hold with aged rum, artichoke amaro (Cynar), elderflower liqueur (St. Germain), lime juice, and orgeat

Elderflower, artichoke, lime and almond – it’s an odd combination, to say the least. So we were pleasantly surprised to find that it makes for a completely charming sour, a sweet floral sit followed by just a hint of bitter complexity from the amaro.

Its creator, bartender Jeremy Oertel at Brooklyn’s Donna, recommends a Jamaican rum (specifically, Smith & Cross), due to its more funky, flavorful undertones. We’ve tried it with several aged rums, and quite frankly we’ve never had a bad one yet.
