Hop Skip Jump

Zac Sorensen, Violet Hour | Chicago

“Herbal and earthy elements can really complement the flavors found in your beer,” says Zac Sorensen, who uses Cynar and Punt e Mes to accent the hoppy aromas of American Pale Ale. An ode to the bitter purls of yore, the Hop Skip Jump is served in a punch mug and garnished with half an orange wheel.


Serving: 1

  • 1 ounce Cynar
  • 1/2 ounce Punt e Mes
  • 1/2 ounce lemon juice
  • 2 dashes grapefruit bitters
  • American Pale Ale, to top

Garnish: half an orange wheel

  1. Combine all ingredients except for the beer in a cocktail shaker and shake.
  2. Add ice to a punch mug and fill halfway with beer.
  3. Strain the shaken ingredients into the mug and garnish with half an orange wheel.
