Dopo Cena

Adapted from a recipe by Adrian Gomes, 10 Dollar Shake, Aberdeen, Scotland.

“Seen @: The Mixing Star European Final (London) // 16.11.10.” Adrian Gomes.

30 ml (1 oz) Disaronno (or amaretto)

30 ml (1 oz) kirsch

12.5 ml (.42 oz) maraschino liqueur

25 ml (.83 oz) fresh lemon juice

5 ml (.17 oz) sugar syrup

1 dash egg white

1 dash Angostura bitters

1 cherry with stem, as garnish

Shake over ice and double-strain into a chilled coupette. Add the garnish.

gaz sez: This looks like a very silly drink at first, and I almost didn’t bother to test it, but there was something about this formula that made me keep going back to it, trying to imagine how it could possibly work. Eventually I figured it would be quicker to just make the damned thing, and boy, am I glad I did. You will be, too. Promise.
