Emotional Tailspin

a Paper Plane riff with notes of dark fruit
34 oz Bourbon, Elijah Craig (Small Batch)
34 oz Amaro, Cappelletti Sfumato Rabarbaro
34 oz Cassis, Combier
34 oz Lemon juice
1   Lemon peel
Shake all ingredients with ice for 15 seconds, strain into a chilled coupe. Garnish with a pigtail lemon twist.
While I like the Sfumato in this, I've used other amari as well, such as Zucca (more berry notes, less smoke) and Cynar (less smoke, more caramel notes).
Trying to use up a bottle of creme de cassis while hunkered down during the coronavirus lockdown. Part of my "Cocktails from the Corona Bunker" series. :-)

Definitely a good use for

Definitely a good use for cassis!  Made this with Zucca (the previous recipe, not the current one), and it was mighty tasty!  Confinement does stimulate the creative juices, doesn't it?
