Tipple

More fartin' around in the liquor cabinet tonight.

1/2 oz Cynar
1/2 oz Benedictine
1/2 oz Galliano
1/2 oz Dubonnet Rouge
1 oz gin (Hendrick's)
1 dash Angostura bitters
1 splash Stirrings Blood Orange bitters
1 splash soda water

I first combined the first four ingredients, estimated the amount of gin after tasting, and then added the bitters and soda after further tasting.

The results are good. Better than expected. I thought I would get (and was actually kind of aiming for) something very herby and medicinal, and instead got something light and almost flowery. I'm not sure how much the Benedictine is contributing to the flavor, though. I might want to bump it up a 1/4 oz. Maybe the Dubonnet too, I dunno. The floweriness might invite a bit of Creme de Violette (long shot). Still, fairly happy with this effort.
