About this Cocktail

The inspiration behind this cocktail came to me when I served a customer a 20th Century and they told me it tasted like olive juice.

  • 2 oz. Cynar
  • 2 oz. Old Tom
  • 3/4 oz. fresh lemon
  • 1/4 oz. fresh lime
  • 2 oz. heavy cream
  • 1 oz. simple syrup
  • 1/4 oz. agave nectar
  • 2 dashes of bittermans coffee bitters (mole, boston, whatever the hell you want really)
  • Soda water
  • 3-18 drops of orange flower water
  • a pop tart - any flavor will do

Simultaneously build a Ramos, a Cynar Sling—cynar, agave, bitters—, and toast a pop tart.
RAMOS - Old Tom, lemon, lime, cream, sugar, egg white, dry shake, 5 kold, shake (don't get carried away), strain into a double old fashioned—no ice—top with soda (No Orange Peel!!)
SLING - build in a mixing glass and stir it 80 times (leave it there. don't pour)
POP TART - If you can't toast a pop tart go out and get yourself thrown into prison for 20 years or so.

Now grab the pop tart and cut it into 16's. Place the pieces on a bread plate or something and drop it down in front of whoever's gonna drink this thing. Then, and this is the most important part, grab the Ramos and dump it in the sink. Make sure to get as much of the liquid out of the glass as
possible. Now pour the sling into the Ramos rinsed glass. Bang it with an orange peel and run for cover.

NOTE: Whatever you do don't mention the pop tart to a customer. Let them figure it out.
