The Tilly Jane Cocktail

“Tilly Jane was the wife of [powerful 19th-century Portlander] William Ladd and has a hiking trail and campground named after her up on Mt. Hood,” says Kevin Ludwig of this cocktail, which appeared on his bar’s opening menu.

3/4 oz. Dolin Blanc vermouth
1/2 oz. Cynar

1 tsp. ginger syrup
2 dashes Regan’s orange bitters

Tools: mixing glass, barspoon, strainer
Glass: cocktail 

Stir all ingredients with ice to chill and strain into a chilled glass.
