The Missus

Amontillado Sherry, Cynar, Rhum Agricole, Bitters
Stir, strain, orange oil (discard)
My better half asked for a drink with sherry, so I made this. The peppercake bitters come from the Bittermen's experimental collection - if you don't have them, I guess you could mix together the first three ingredients and see what you think will tie the room together.

I really like this drink- the cynar/sherry combination is one of my favorites. I subbed a bit with what I had on hand; Lustau East India Sherry, Clement Rhum Agricole, and Adam Elmegirab's Spanish bitters. I'll make this again, thank you!

Tasty. Made with Aphrodite bitters and a lemon twist. Need to make again closer to spec. (3 stars)
