The Bolivian Marching Cocktail

Created or adapted by Cocktailpunk

2 oz Singani 63
.75 lemon juice
.5 simple syrup
3 lusty squeezes of Cocktailpunk Alpino Bitters

Shake and serve in a rocks glass with enough ice to cover. No garnish.

Essentially a SIngani sour, the Alpino lights it up with subtle forest notes. You could make it with Pisco but that is not recommended! You owe it to yourself to seek out this incredible spirit.
