Piglet's Lament

About this Cocktail

At work, I was tinkering around with Negroni variations for a request from an upcoming wedding. I was inspired by Eeyore's Requiem to include other liqueurs in the mix, but I did not want it to be as extreme as Toby Maloney's neo-classic with Campari being the largest component. Therefore, I stuck with the equal parts gin, liqueur, and vermouth ratio. Since Campari and elderflower work so well together, I selected St. Elder as one of the parts. Also, elderflower and Cynar pair well so I took that direction as well especially since Cynar also appears in Eeyore's Requiem. For a name, I kept the Winnie the Pooh theme and decided on Piglet's Lament; one of Piglet's laments in Winnie the Pooh is "It is hard to be brave when you're only a Very Small Animal."

Ingredients:
  • 1 oz Berkshire Mtn Distillers Greylock Gin
  • 1/2 oz Campari
  • 1/4 oz St. Elder Elderflower Liqueur
  • 1/4 oz Cynar
  • 1 oz Cinzano Sweet Vermouth
Preparation:

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a grapefruit twist.
