Whilst nibbling away on some fromage de tête, Chef pulled out a little pocket rocket which had everyone perplexed; Cynar. Yeah, don’t worry, I’d never seen nor heard of this little beauty before either.
What is Cynar ?
It is a bitter liqueur stemming from Italy which is a blend of herbs and plants, but predominately made comprised of artichokes! Wowsers!
How to Drink Cynar?
Needless to say it was a revelation; bitter, savoury and the perfect addition to any Campari/Aperol based cocktail.
We were adding a dash to our Spritzers, and let me tell you I’ll be asking for it to be added to every proceeding one I take from this day forth.
Spread the good word: What is Cynar – It’s Italian for bittersweet goodness! Na, its not, but it should be.
If you have any good Cynar drink recipes – don’t be a scrooge – make sure you share them with us by whacking them in the comments section below.
Drink on !
