Super Mario Mushroom Cocktail

This earthy cocktail comes from Two Restaurant in Chicago. Barkeep Graham Growe infused Bulleit Bourbon with shiitake mushrooms, and combines that with the delicious cardamom-based amaro, Cardamaro. Add in some ginger syrup for a sweet and spicy kick, and you’ve got an interesting drink full of earthy and savory notes, with just a hint of bitterness to keep things in check.
