This is an elegant, and spicy cocktail; of rye, ginger, and amaro. We cheer the continued fashion for complex adult flavours in modern cocktails! The Witty Comeback began as a vanity project — a “house cocktail” invented by Bon Appetit writer Dan Saltzstein. We’re pleased to say it worked out fabulously at the Normandie house.

Forget those agonisingly sweet, candy-tasting limoncellos you might know. This should be fragrant, slightly numbing and tingling, and quite bitter. Kind of like Campari, but with less sugar. It’s a refreshing drink alone, with soda water, or in cocktails. Pompelmocello and Buddhacello are my favourite of the citrus infusions, by a long way. This is based on a recipe from Burning Pasta.
