3⁄4 oz Bourbon, Elijah Craig (Small Batch)
3⁄4 oz Amaro, Cappelletti Sfumato Rabarbaro
3⁄4 oz Cassis, Combier
3⁄4 oz Lemon juice
Shake all ingredients with ice for 15 seconds, strain into a chilled coupe. Garnish with a lemon peel.
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).
Riff on one of my favorite modern classics, the Paper Plane. 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. :-)
