The Family Meal

Gregory Mangieri, Gramercy Tavern, New York, NY

“At the end of almost every family meal at GT, I finish with some sort of chocolate with fruit, nuts, salt, etc.—something along those lines. This is the incarnate of that.”

1 strip bacon

3 mini Hershey chocolate bars

1.75 oz (52.5 ml) Tanqueray No. TEN Gin

1 oz (30 ml) Amaro Lucano

.5 oz (15 ml) Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur

.5 oz (15 ml) fresh lemon juice

2 dashes Fee Brothers Black Walnut Bitters, as garnish

Muddle half of the bacon with 2 chocolate bars and .5 oz (15 ml) gin in a shaker. Add remaining ingredients. Shake over ice, and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Skewer the remaining bacon and microplane the remaining chocolate bar. Add as garnishes, with the bitters.
