Fight the flu
The End Is Nigh
from Cure, New Orleans
The Cure: While Varnelli Amaro Sibilla is no longer used as an antimalarial drug, its high concentrations of gentian, a bitter herb, and quinine, an alkaloid found naturally in cinchona-tree bark, may still reduce fever, curb pain, and ease digestion.
11/2 oz Rittenhouse bonded rye
1 oz Bonal Gentiane-Quina aperitif wine
1/4 oz Varnelli Amaro Sibilla
2 dashes of Angostura Bitters
Combine ingredients in a mixing glass. Stir 40 revolutions and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with an orange peel.
