Southeastern Cocktail

Description
Cachaça, Cynar, Bénédictine, Amaro, Grapefruit bitters, Lime juice, Lemon zest
Instructions
Shake, strain, rocks, low-ball, lemon twist garnish
Notes
From an idea from Eastern Standard. Cynar, Lime, and bitters are my additions. Quite bitter. Good cocktail to linger over. Substitute other pie-spice amari, such as Ramazzotti as desired. Abano has a strong black pepper top note.
History
Cachaca, Benedictine, "Luxardo Amaro", which I assume means Luxardo's Abano amaro.

Bitter. Slow drinking. Complex. Might benefit from a top-shelf Cachaca (Leblon?) (4 stars)
