Babette's Supper Club was a popular drinking/entertainment spot in Atlantic City during Prohibition. It is featured prominently in the HBO series Boardwalk Empire. This cocktail has no connection to the spot other than I enjoy the HBO show and wanted to name the creation after this locale.

Lamuya commented on 7/07/2021:

I didn't have the exact same ingredients, but I tried a variation with
1 1⁄2 oz bourbon (Maker's Mark)
1⁄2 oz Bittermens Citron Sauvage (a grapefruit bitter liqueur that has both bitterness and surprising acidity, so I skipped the bitters and twist)
1⁄2 oz Cynar (what I had on hand)
1⁄2 oz Ancho Reyes chili liqueur (definitely try adding this if you have it)
and it was really delicious!
