A famously busy bartender once told me “almond flavors want to and need to shack up together in chilled coupe glasses with lemon”, and I believed her. Who knew. Then she added some rye whiskey, a little dash of this, a little dash of that, and some fresh rosemary. I’ve been a devoted pupil of hers ever since. And every now and then I take notes. The exact recipe is contained here within. She should be famous. This drink is noteworthy.
You will need:
2 oz Cleveland Underground Rye Whiskey Finished with Black Cherry Wood
3/4 oz Cocchi Sweet Vermouth*
1/2 oz Disaronno Amaretto**
2 Dashes Angostura Bitters***
2 Dashes Fee Brothers Lemon Bitters***
- Add ice, whiskey, vermouth, amaretto, and bitters to a mixing tin, then stir and strain into a chilled coupe glass.
- Garnish with rosemary and a lemon twist.
