The Undertaker

1 12 oz Bourbon (original called for Fighting Cock, but any spicy bourbon will do)
12 oz Grand Marnier
14 oz Cynar
12 oz Grapefruit juice (pink is fine, but ruby red is excellent)
Shake with ice, strain, and serve up with an orange twist.
This cocktail was created for the 2009 Grand Marnier & Navan Mixology Summit in Vail, Colorado.
From other users
  • Very orange-forward, as you might expect. Sort of a not-very-sour whiskey sour. — ☆☆☆☆
  • This has become one of my favorite cocktails of all time - it's pleasantly bitter, not too sweet, and has a nice lift from the grapefruit. I have yet to try it with rye, but I imagine it would be very nice. — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Small. Made with dry curacao and ruby red juice. Terrific on the nose, but unremarkable taste. — ☆☆☆
