For the uninitiated, Cynar is a bitter and sweet liqueur made from artichokes, and while it's suitable for sipping on its own or with a little soda, the spirit is also great in cocktails. This recipe from Sother Teague, beverage director of NYC's famed bitters bar, Amor y Amargo, combines Cynar with grapefruit juice, rum and seltzer for an effervescent you won't be able to put down. It's bright, herbal and refreshing, so it's perfect for spring.
