 FOR HIS ORIGINAL
COCKTAIL

MONTENEGRO AFTER DARK

"As the sun it setting the mood begins to change - the patrons seek something with a little extra kick as their dinners digest and conversation among them gets louder and merrier. Montenegro after dark is both smooth, complex with a little bit of bite and heat."
              
Inspiration: Variation on classic builds with a little intensity and heat from the Bourbon and Mezcal

Ingredients

  • 2.0 oz Amaro Montenegro
  • 0.5 oz Bourbon
  • 0.5 oz Mezcal
  • 1 barspoon Demerara Syrup
  • 2 dashes Regan's Orange Bitters
  • 1 dash Angostura Aromatic Bitters

Method

Add all ingredients into mixing glass, add ice and stir. Pour into an old fashioned glass with three cubes. Garnish with an orange twist. For this recipe, I used Old Grand-Dad Bourbon and Fidencio Clasico Mezcal.

FOR HIS ORIGINAL
COCKTAIL

PROFESSORESSA MONTENEGRO

"A bright summery swizzle, lightly sweet and refreshing. Hints of orange blossom from Amaro Montenegro, pair perfectly with the flavors of strawberries, cucumber, and citrus."

Inspiration: Amaro Montenegro's versatility lends itself to many applications. I wanted to make a drink that was juicy, clean and refreshing. The flavors remind me of sitting on the porch on a breezy summer evening

Ingredients

  • 2.0 oz Amaro Montenegro
  • 2 medium Strawberries
  • 0.25 oz Cinnamon Simple Syrup
  • 0.5 oz Cucumber Juice
  • 1.0 oz Lemon Juice


Method

Muddle Strawberries, add all ingredients, whip with two Kold draft cubes, Double Stain into a large wine glass, top with pebble ice, garnish with a cucumber slice and burnt cinnamon stick.
