The Art of Choke
For the herbaceous palate, Cynar and Charteuse fans unite!
Combine liquids in mixing glass, add mint and gently muddle. Let sit 1 min. Stir, then strain into rocks glass over large ice. Garnish with a mint sprig.

A touch too much sweetness for me, but not egregiously. Like the minty element and could maybe do with some extra help in that area (add more fresh mint, or add fernet branca or creme de menthe). Bitterness is just right.
Original recipe calls for 1 oz of Cynar. Minty, bitter, and quite delightful, although the rum is completely lost under the rest.
Very good. Bitter. Slow drinking. Added 1/2 tsp Menta Branca to simulate the missing mint. Good (but not as good as when made with fresh mint). Doesn't need the syrup.
