Adapted from a recipe by Giuseppe Gallo, Purple Bar at Sanderson Hotel, London, UK.
30 ml (1 oz) Tequila Ocho plata
20 ml (.66 oz) Campari
20 ml (.66 oz) Barolo Chinato wine
1 lime twist, as garnish
1 cucumber slice, as garnish
Stir over ice and strain into a rocks glass over an ice chunk. Add the garnishes.
gaz sez: Repeat after me: Tequila Ocho is incredible; Tequila Ocho is incredible; Tequila Ocho is incredible. And when you combine it with the incomparable Campari and the multi-dimensional Barolo Chinato (macerated with over 20 ingredients including cardamom, calisaya, gentian, and citrus peels), you just can’t go wrong. Bravo, Giuseppe Gallo!

Axis & Allies
Adapted from a recipe by Jesse Card, Salud! Bistro, Christiansted, St. Croix, USVI.
“This is my new favorite end of shift go-to drink. Well-balanced and titillating, it does its job to calm the nerves after a long night behind the bar. My reprieve from providing reprieve, as it were. The Genever provides such a strong backbone for the rest of the ingredients to settle upon, while the small splash of Riesling & citrus makes it sing. Cheers!” Jesse Card.
45 ml (1.5 oz) Bols Genever (Netherlands)
15 ml (.5 oz) Barolo Chinato (Italy)
7.5 ml (.25 oz) Bénédictine (France)
3 dashes Peychaud’s bitters (USA)
Dry Riesling (Germany)
1 lemon twist, as garnish (Unaffiliated, not like the Swiss were to WWII, more like David Bowie is to gender)
Stir all ingredients except the Riesling over ice and strain into a chilled coupe. Add a splash of Riesling and the garnish.
gaz sez: Jesse sure as heck knows how to float my boat—the bold combination of flavors in every ingredient (bar the Riesling) in this drink creates a battleground on the palate, and who would have thought it: The German Riesling jumps in there and calms everyone down! Fabulous. (Yes, the drink got extra points because Jesse mentioned Bowie . . . )
