The Don Ciccio, named after the character in Godfather II, is one of the new cocktails on the Fiola list I’m excited about. While playing around with different ingredients for the fall cocktail list, I came across this lovely combination.
It certainly is more suited for fall weather with the Scotch and herbal notes from the Benedictine and Chartreuse, but there’s enough lemon in there to brighten it up for the last bit of summer weather.
The Don Ciccio
1 oz Sheep Dip Scotch
.75 oz Lemon Juice
.75 oz Benedictine
.75 oz Yellow Chartreuse
Shake. Strain into your favorite cocktail glass. Garnish with a wide lemon twist.
