The Un-Usual Suspect

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 drink

Canlis • Seattle

Bartender Kai Braaten offers the Un-Usual Suspect as an alternative to the Negroni, another pleasantly bitter aperitif cocktail. Both drinks use Italian bitters, but Braaten prefers Fernet-Branca's herbal complexity to the Campari in Negronis for this drink.
