1⁄2 oz Batavia Arrack
1⁄2 oz Mezcal
3⁄4 oz Sweet vermouth
1⁄4 oz Allspice Dram
1⁄4 oz Bénédictine

Stir with ice, serve up


Can also be made with .75 oz tequila and .75 oz mezcal, if you favor a bit more smoke. Went over very well as an aperitif

  • Made with blanco tequila but aged mezcal, and Dolin and xocolatl bitters. I'm floored that 1/4 oz of my homemade dram didn't take over. Nice finish.

I remember making this years ago (maybe a decade?). This is a Phil Ward creation.  Sweet vermouth is Carpano Antica, Allspice Dram is St. Elizabeth and bitters (I've seen builds with 2 dashes) are Bittermens Xocolatl Mole Bitters.  Garnish is a lit Laphroaig Cask Strength soaked cherry.
