Need a break from Manhattan and Brooklyn? Try Queens. Prepared for a professor on summer vacation from her day job in the borough. Lovely nose on this drink thanks to the rhubarb and Suze. It's a small-coupe cocktail; up the ratios if you wanna.
1.5 oz bonded rye (Overholt or Rittenhouse)
.5 oz Suze
2 dashes Rhubarb bitters
Tools: mixing glass, strainer
Garnish: Luxardo cherry and healthy orange peel
Combine ingredients in mixing glass with ice. Stir. Strain into coupe. Drop in the cherry and peel. Enjoy that vibrant outer-borough bittersweetness.
