Fenugreek is a prominent spice in many world cuisines, including Iranian, Ethiopian, and Indian. It has a toasty, caramel-like smell and a hearty, rich flavor. The flavor of fenugreek stands up well in rich, dark liquors like Rye or Bourbon, and can add complexity and depth to a classic Scotch & Soda.

Aged Rum has delicious oaky flavors of vanilla and cinnamon, along with a complex sweetness. The bitter fruit in the Aperol combined with the intensely savory maple / burnt caramel flavors of the fenugreek perfectly complement and balance out the woody sweetness of the rum; these flavors work together to produce a balanced, complex cocktail that’s easy to make and only requires a few ingredients. Plus, it looks great – the Aperol lends a beautiful vermilion color and it almost looks as if it was lit from within
