Much Too Much

Inspired by the Elvis Costello song New Amsterdam, Much Too Much adds a bitter herbal twist to a Gimlet. The raspberries provide a brilliant red hue to this tart cocktail.

  • 2 oz. New Amsterdam gin
  • 0.5 oz. fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 0.5 oz. simple syrup
  • .25 oz. Cynar
  • 2 fresh raspberries

Muddle the 2 raspberries in a boston shaker. Add the rest of the ingredients and shake with ice. Strain into a chilled coupe.


For the truly brave, cut the simple syrup in half (using only 1/4 oz. instead of 1/2) and let the Cynar dominate.
