Can I Kick It?

This one tastes dark. Root is tough, you want the flavor but its hard to balance and to keep it from dominating the finish.

1½ oz bourbon
¼ oz rye
½ oz Cynar
scant ¼ oz Root liqueur
½ tsp cane syrup
3 dashes black walnut bitters
nutmeg, grated, about three passes

stir vigorously and serve over a big rock

you can finish with a dusting of nutmeg for bouquet if you don’t mind the dust in the glass
