A Forest

2 oz Old Tom Gin, Hayman's
14 oz Elderflower liqueur
14 oz Amaro dell'Erborista
14 oz Crème de Violette
14 oz Allspice Dram
6 dr Bitters, Bittercube Bolivar
Shake with ice; coupé glass; twist a lemon peel over it.
It's also good with bourbon instead of the gin (I'd suggest Elijah Craig 12), but then you lose the interesting pale mossy green color.
I was curious if anything here had pimento dram and crème de violette in it. After I found nothing, I thought "I wonder how many other herbal/flowery things I could slam together in a glass..." The Amaro dell'Erborista was easily my choice for an amaro as it's the most herbaceous (to me). I wonder how this would be with Zirbenz...
