Hunt vs Lauda: A Cocktail Celebrating Formula One Racing's Greatest Season

The 1976 Formula One season was one of intense excitement and controversy, as arch-rivals James Hunt and Niki Lauda battled throughout, with Hunt winning the World Championship in the final race by a single point.* Being an avid F1 fan, in honor of these two champions and this season for the ages, I've created this cocktail.

*After making this drink, you can check out what inspired it by watching the excellent BBC documentary Hunt vs Lauda: F1's Greatest Racing Rivals, and Ron Howard's 2013 film Rush (with my friend Jack Morgan's favorite actor, Chris Hemsworth; Jack's third book of poetry coming soon: The Chris Hemsworth Sonnets).

¾ part B&B ½ part Ramazzotti*

¼ part Domaine de Canton splash of Grand Marnier ½ part Schweppes Ginger Ale

dash of Scrappy’s Cardamom bitters Stir in a shaker over ice. Strain into a chilled

*And doesn't "Ramazzotti" sound like a racer who drives a Ferrari?
