Chip Tyndale’s Bamboo

Chip Tyndale, Dutch Kills | Queens, NY

Taking first place in our blind Bamboo tasting, Chip Tyndale‘s recipe hit all the marks with every judge. The formula was classical by modern standards: 1 ½ ounces of amontillado sherry, 1 ¼ ounces of Dolin dry vermouth, ¼ ounce of Dolin blanc vermouth, and a dash each of orange and Angostura bitters, served with a lemon twist. Tim Miner of The Long Island Bar called it a “complete cocktail,” citing the complexity of flavor, which pulled in saline, bitter and dry notes, while boasting a full body and a finish that didn’t fade.
