The Departed cocktail has a lot of flavors coming at you, from the demerara rum (think warm brown sugars), campari (the bite), Mezcal (the delicious smoke) and an Amaro. So a balance of sweet and bitter coming at you.

It tastes a bit like a negroni, but sweeter. The campari hits you hard, then that’s followed through with some brown sugar notes. There is a little bit of smoke on the backend aftertaste that grows mildly when you take additional sips.

The Departed
– 1 oz. Demerara Aged Rum
– 1 oz. Campari
– ¾ oz. Averna Amaro
– ½ oz. Mezcal
– 1 dash. Peychaud’s bitters
– Garnish: orange twist
