3 Layers of Personality

In this cocktail, three distinct layers of cocktail in one glass take you on a journey in a glass, from spiced and bitter to dry and sour to bittersweet Campari.

Okay, this cocktail doesn’t have seven full layers, but it does have three distinct layers of spirit. Normally when we talk about layering flavor, we’re referring to the idea that a cocktail should be dynamic with tons of different tastes. In this cocktail, we’re literally layering the different flavors on top of one another. The idea is to taste all parts in succession: The spiced angostura followed by the dry gin and vermouth sour, finished with the sweetened Campari syrup.

1 1/2 oz Blanc Vermouth

1 1/2 oz Fresh Orange Juice

1/2 oz London Dry Gin

1/2 oz Lime

1/4 oz Grenadine

Bar spoon Lemon-Grapefruit oleo

1/2 oz Campari-Ginger Syrup

3 dash Angostura

  1. Combine vermouth, orange, gin, lime, grenadine, and oleo together in a shaker tin with ice. Shake well.
  2. Fill a glass with ice. Pour the Campari syrup over the ice to sit at the bottom of the cocktail.
  3. Double strain the cocktail over the Campari syrup. Add more ice if you need to.
  4. Dash angostura over the surface of the cocktail, covering it with a layer of bitters. Finish by expressing a twist of orange over the cocktail, and enjoy!
