Cynar Julep

Cynar Julep Cocktail Recipe

The Cynar Julep is apparently the julep of choice in Buenos Aires and this particular recipe comes from Argentinian bartender Renato “Tato” Giovannoni of Florerèa Atlántico. The soft vegetal bitterness of Cynar works remarkably well with grapefruit and fresh mint. Try substituting the grapefruit soda for freshly squeezed grapefruit juice and soda water.
