The Whistle Back

By Megan Dunlap

I am not the best cook, but I can make a mean cocktail! I want to share a drink recipe that I love to make for people. I created this one night while working at the “Whistle Back”, and I know your people will love it too. 

In a Japanese Mixing Tin you will combine:

  • 2.5 oz – Whistle Pig – Piggy Back Rye Whiskey
  • 1 oz – Cynar (Artichoke Liqueur)
  • .5 oz – Amaro Nonino
  • 2 Dashes of Black Walnut Bitters
  • 1 Dash of Angostura Bitters
Stir all of these ingredients together for 20 seconds. Then double strain the ingredients into a chilled martini glass.
To garnish, you will need an orange peel that you will twist over the cocktail to express the oils from the rind. On a skewer place orange rind and Luxardo Cherries (the more the merrier).
