Sparrow + Wolf’s ‘Get off my lawn’ perfect for cranky old man

Get Off My Lawn

This drink at Sparrow + Wolf on Spring Mountain Road was inspired by the thought of a cranky old man smoking a cigar on his front porch, yelling at neighborhood kids. The bitterness of the amaro dominates the flavor profile. As a nod to the man’s presumed good heart, the orange peel offers a sweet touch on the nose, and the maple syrup offers just a hint of sugar on the back end. The smoke, while visually interesting, honestly adds little to the flavor, so don’t feel bad if you skip that step at home.

■ 2 oz. Camus VS Cognac

■ 1 oz. Amari blend (equal parts Luxardo Bitter, Amaro Zucca and

Cynar) or your favorite amaro
