Poison Dart

November 4th, 2010 by Colonel Tiki

Poison Dart
½ oz orgeat
½ oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
¼ oz cinnamon syrup
¼ oz Cynar
2 oz Bulleit Bourbon
dash orange bitters
dash pimento dram

stir well and double strain into cocktail glass, orange twist garnish.

The spices in Amaros pair wonderfully in tropicals. Here, the rich complex Cynar is paired with cinnamon, lemon and orgeat to pull out those lovely spicy notes in Bulleit. You don’t need rum to make tiki!

    A couple years ago Fred Sarkis was filling in at a night club and he tried to make me something respectable with the poor selection at hand. He ended up pouring some stashed Cynar into a fruity drink, which was surprisingly good. I should experiment more with that pairing.

    Interesting drink: The Posion Dart I want to try this out, but want to ask a dash as in the pimento would be 1/8 teaspoon, 3 drops, 6 drops?

    @Cajunspice: I would use 1/8th oz for starters, straw-test, then adjust.
