Vancouver’s L’Abattoir bartender Katie Ingram created this cocktail for the bitter lovers out there, with Forty Creek Copper Pot Whisky, Campari, Amaro Averna, amber vermouth, and Bittered Sling Kensington Bitters. The Adieu Mon Coeur features a spicy sweetness balanced with the bitterness of Campari and dry aromatic Kensington bitters. It’s available at L’Abattoir until Valentine’s Day, but you can set the mood at home by trying your hand at the recipe below.
