Makes 1 drink
I concocted this drink based on a Chinato cocktail I had recently while traveling in Denver. It had a pear simple syrup, but I’m using Amarena cherries, from Fabbri, instead, which also plays on the maraschino cherry garnish for the classic whiskey sour.
- 2 ounces bourbon
- 1 ounce lemon juice
- ½ ounce simple syrup
- ½ ounce syrup from a jar of Amarena cherries
- ¾ ounce Barolo Chinato
- Amarena cherries, for garnish
- Lemon twist, for garnish
Combine the bourbon, lemon juice, simple syrup, and Amarena syrup in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously. Strain into a rocks or stemless wine glass with more ice. Pour the Barolo Chinato on top, over the back of a spoon. Garnish with Amarena cherries and a lemon twist.
