The Roman Holiday, An Italian Jungle Bird

roman-holiday-cindys-chicago-vertical-crdt-tk“Spirit guide” Nandini Khaund found inspiration for this recipe in Amaro Meletti’s Art Nouveau café, where the popular “anisetta con la mosca” drink features coffee beans soaked in amaro. The combo of amaro and cold-brew make this autumnal riff on the classic Jungle Bird unforgettable.

1 oz. Amaro Meletti
¼ oz. Campari
¾ oz. pineapple juice
¾ oz. fresh lime juice
1 oz. cold-brew coffee
¼ oz. demerara syrup
Pinch Maldon sea salt
Tools: shaker, strainer
Glass: rocks
Garnish: cinnamon stick

Shake ingredients together with ice. Strain over crushed ice into a rocks glass. Garnish.
