We don’t know what the lion was drinking (The O.T. doesn’t feature many cocktail recipes), but after the contest in the lion’s den we think Daniel had one of these. The reason: In ancient times, good wine tasted more like Ramazotti, the Italian vermouth style bitter.
2 ounces Ramazotti Amaro
1 ounce gin
1/4 of an orange
1 ounce soda water
Squeeze the orange into a wine glass and drop it in the glass. Add the Ramazotti, gin, and several ice cubes. Stir. Add the soda and stir once more.
Tasting notes: Warm notes of bitter and sweet.
Tomorrow: Le Weekend
