Principe di Piemonte Cocktail

Based on the Pendennis Club cocktail, this drink takes its Italian twist both in name (a tip of the hat to the 1920s-built grand hotel in Viareggio) and with a pour of Barolo chinato.

2 oz. dry gin
1/2 oz. Barolo chinato
1/2 oz. apricot eau de vie
1/2 oz. fresh lime juice
1/2 oz. simple syrup (1:1)
Tools: shaker, strainer
Glass: cocktail or coupe

Combine all ingredients with ice and shake to chill. Strain into a chilled glass.
