False Start

Anne Robinson, Westlight | Brooklyn

Westlight’s False Start is a stirred drink garnished with cucumber that balances reposado tequila with bitter, nutty Cardamaro, rosso vermouth and Cynar, for a drink that’s rich but surprisingly light on its feet.

  • 3/4 ounce rosso vermouth, preferably Dolin
  • 1/4 ounce Cynar
  • 2 cucumber slices

Garnish: cucumber slice

Directions
