1 1/2 oz vodka
1/2 oz Amaro Sfumato Rabarbaro (rhubarb amaro)
1/2 oz fresh lime juice
1/2 oz ginger syrup (recipe below)
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Don't waste time garnishing after a bad day!
To make your own ginger syrup, combine one part strong ginger tea made from fresh ginger root with one part simple syrup (which is one part water and one part sugar - combine over low heat until sugar is dissolved without boiling). Store in the refrigerator.
As the saying goes, alcohol never solved any problems, but neither did milk!
