This drink, from Meaghan Dorman of NYC’s Raines Law Room, is a true masterwork of balance: smoky and herbal, floral and sweet.
The original recipe calls for Amaro Averna, but it’ll work well with other medium-sweet amari, like Luxardo, Nonino, or Ramazotti.
Stir all of the ingredients with ice for about 20 seconds. Strain into a small chilled cocktail glass. If you have grapefruit peel handy, express a twist over the drink and then garnish with it.
