The Piemontese Connection

A naturally dark, soothing cocktail

This cocktail has a savory element to balance the natural bits of sweetness Dark Batch has in its profile. The bit of sherry makes its presence felt from the nose with bits of toasted hazelnut and mission fig, all the way through the finish where hints of brown sugar reverberate. This cocktail is simply delicious and perfect for fall.

  • 1 1/2 Ounce Alberta Rye Whisky Dark Batch
  • 1 Ounce wine, like Barolo Chinato
  • 1/2 Ounce Cynar liqueur


Combine all ingredients into a mixing glass and stir with cracked ice. Strain over a big block of ice in a double old fashioned glass. Garnish with an expression of lemon oil and a neatly trimmed lemon peel. Sip and enjoy.

Pie Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Pie Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
