1⁄2 oz Averna
1⁄2 oz Orgeat
1⁄2 oz Lemon juice
1 1⁄2 oz Lager (Black Lager, such as Shiner Black)
1 twst Lemon peel (Wide swath)
Instructions

Shake all except lager with ice. Strain into Old Fashioned glass (no ice). Add lager and stir gently to incorporate. Express lemon peel, swipe rim & drop in.

Notes

Make sure to use a black lager (aka schwarzbier) for this. Stouts, porters, etc. are too heavy... Might be a touch sweet, but I was aiming for a little more mass-market appeal, since the winning drink from this contest will appear on The Chesterfield's menu... Dropping the Orgeat to 1/4 oz definitely brings the flavor more in line with the palates of most of us here.

History

Created for a Buffalo Trace cocktail contest at The Chesterfield in Dallas, TX, November, 2012
