The Drunk Uncle cocktail is another spin off a famous cocktail, the Negroni, but with a smokey twist. You swap the gin for scotch and the campari for Cynar, giving it a bittersweet taste. The drink was first created by a bartended named Shawn Soole, and first appeared in print through The Negroni: Drinking to La Dolce Vita, With Recipes & Lore by Gary Regan.
- 1 1/2 oz Islay Scotch

- 3/4 oz Cynar Amaro
- Garnish: Grapefruit twist
Add all the ingredients into a mixing glass with ice and stir for 20-30 seconds or until well-chilled. Strain into a chilled coupe glass and then garnish with a grapefruit peel/twist.
