Probably not Italian. But pretty freakin’ scary.
The Italian Gentleman Cocktail, on the other hand, is not one bit scary. Not sure what the origin of the name is, but I do know that this slightly bitter whiskey drink is worthy of any gentle man or woman.
Italian Gentleman Cocktail
1 1/2 ounces Campari
1 1/2 ounces bourbon
3/4 ounce lemon juice
1/4 ounce simple syrup (equal parts sugar and hot water)
Dash of orange bitters
1. In a cocktail shaker with ice, combine Campari, bourbon, lemon juice, and simple syrup. Add some orange bitters.
2. Shake and strain into a coupe class. Garnish with a lemon wheel.

Is Ethan Hawke Italian? A Gentleman?
I do know that This One Goes Out To Ethan Hawke. I’d bet he would like to listen to this folksy, sweet song while sipping a cool beverage.
