  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 Drink

Mixologist Ryan Fitzgerald based this recipe on the Negroni, replacing the Campari with artichoke-flavored Cynar and the sweet vermouth with fruity Dimmi. He also adds salt. "A few bartenders are playing with salt in cocktails," he says. "It helps enhance flavors while counteracting the bitterness in some spirits."
