How to Make the Polpo’s Cynar Gin Fizz

Russell Norman, owner of Polpo, explains, “This variation on a gin fizz uses Campari’s obscure cousin, Cynar. With a base of artichoke and a host of other secret botanicals, this Italian apéritif is the backbone of the drink. It’s refreshingly bittersweet and has enough tartness to get you going back for another sip. It’s a great summer drink and mild enough to sip all afternoon.”

You’ll need the following equipment:

If you are in the USA, you can buy Beefeater and Cynar on Reservebar.com.
