Aster Family Sour

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 Drink

Rob Roy • Seattle

The predominant ingredient in the herbal Italian liqueur Cynar is artichoke, a member of the aster family. While Cynar is traditionally drunk neat or on the rocks as a digestif, Zane Harris uses it as the base for this delicious bittersweet sour.
