My riff on Eric Alperin's Skid Row.


After seeing a guest a few seats down from me getting Eric Alperin's Skid Row as a bartender's whim, and I was inspired to riff on it at home. I swapped the Genever for rye, kept the Ramazzotti and apricot liqueur, and supplemented the notes with sherry and absinthe. For a name, I dubbed this one the Bowery after one of the historical skid rows in Manhattan.
