Bitter Ex

Kate Schlagle, Mundo at the Paper Factory Hotel, Long Island City, NY

“This drink was inspired by my ex-love. Vodka. She used to be my number one. Ride or die. Then she started betraying me and I had to move on. With a replacement like Campari, how can you not feel bitter? I introduce you to the ‘Bitter Ex.’”

2 oz (60 ml) Ketel One Vodka

.75 oz (22.5 ml) Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur

.5 oz (15 ml) Campari

.5 oz (15 ml) The American Juice Company’s Ginger Gershwin

.25 oz (7.5 ml) fresh lemon juice

4 dashes Peychaud’s Bitters

1 orange twist, as garnish

Shake over ice, and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Squeeze the twist over the drink and add as garnish.
