Cin-Cyn Cocktail

cin cyn cocktail

There are several cocktails I’ve run across that use the Negroni formula, which is 1:1:1 of vermouth, liquor, and amaro. There’s the Boulevardier, which uses bourbon, or the Old Pal, which gets rye in the mix. Well, here’s another take on that 1:1:1 mix that uses a different amaro (and one I’m pretty fond of): Cynar. Give it a name based on the Italian toast “cin cin,” (pronounced chin chin) and guzzle it down!


  • 1 oz Cynar
  • 1 oz gin
  • 1 oz sweet vermouth
  • dash of bitters
  • shake and serve in a chilled cocktail glass
  • thin orange slice garnish

    I had a Cynar Negroni at Clive’s Classic Lounge in Victoria Canada about two years ago. First thing I did when I got home was sleep…and then go buy a bottle of Cynar. That stuff is awesome. I will have to try the addition of bitters. Nice touch.

      If I had to choose 1 amaro to take to a desert island, it’d be Cynar. I adore the superhero-like artichoke logo, too.
