Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with an orange twist.
After returning home from my New York City trip, I wanted a cocktail but did not have the energy to search through a few books until I found one that fit my mood and that I had not made before. Therefore, I began scheming and made a hybrid of a Brooklyn, Creole, and 1919. My time in New York City brought me to places that looked like speakeasies or were actually illegal drinking dens during Prohibition; indeed, my final moments before leaving to the train station were spent in a bar room up service stairs through an unmarked doorway. Taking the Brooklyn aspect from my first recipe idea direction, I dubbed this one the Bedford Nest after one of that borough's most infamous speakeasies during the 1920s.
