Dark Side

Ingredients

Although a fairly unpopular cocktail since its creation in 2008 by bartender Adam Bernbach, this “minor classic” cocktail enjoys a reputation in Washington, D.C. It combines a mixture of gin, Barolo Chinato (an aromatized wine similar to vermouth that includes quinine bark), and Peychaud’s bitters.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 1/4 oz Gin, (preferably Plymouth)
  • 3/4 oz Barolo Chinato
  • 3 dashes Peychaud’s Bitters
  • Garnish: Brandied Cherry

PREPARATION

Add the gin, Barolo Chinato, and bitters into a mixing glass with ice and stir until well-chilled. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a brandied cherry.
