This bitter highball brings together a number of seemingly disparate flavors in perfect harmony. Beverage Director Paul McGee suggests using Fever Tree for the tonic, and Hamilton’s 151 proof for the rum for an ideal balance.
1 oz. Averna Amaro
.5 oz. demerara rum
.25 oz. lemon juice
4 oz. tonic water
Build all ingredients in a highball glass. Fill with crushed ice. Garnish with mint bouquet and lemon peel.
