We spotted this cocktail over at @trufflesontherocks and it was born when owner Jean-Félix was craving a Boulevardier but was out of Campari. Instead, he took all good things he had on hand and created this limit-filled yet limit-less cocktail.
And it's a really good one! It's boozy, strong and in -your-face and that wonderful way that a cocktail can be. The Cynar adds the nice bitterness we've come to love in cocktails and the elderflower liqueur works from the other direction to sweeten things up a bit.
The vintage glassware with horses on have been sitting on our shelf for a while while we were trying to find a horse related cocktail. After a few months we decided to not limit ourselves to only horse cocktails in these glasses, a Limitations No. 2 works just as well.
Cheers to no limits Jean-Félix!
