Cocktail of the Month: Anselm Kiefer

1 ounce Krogstad Aquavit
1 ounce Barolo Chinato
½ ounce kirschwasser
Supreme of lemon
Dash of floral bitters
Lemon twist (for garnish)

Combine the aquavit, chinato and kirschwasser into a shaking glass. Hand squeeze (don’t muddle) one supreme of lemon into the glass. Add ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a coupe or martini glass.

“At jimgermanbar, we finish with a dash of housemade hibiscus bitters,” German says. “Use any floral, not pungent, bitters.” Garnish with a twist of lemon.
