1 oz Grapefruit juice
12 oz Allspice Dram (homemade)
12 oz Bonal Gentiane Quina
12 oz Amer Picon
12 oz Rye, Rittenhouse 100 (Bacon fat washed*)
14 oz Orange liqueur, Compass Box Orangerie
2 ds Orange bitters, Regans' orange bitters
Shake well, double strain, up, garnish with bitters. *To fat wash the whiskey: Add equal parts cooled bacon fat (good bacon please!) and whiskey to a Mason jar. Shake daily for seven days. Freeze jar, remove solid fat from the top, strain whiskey through a Chemex filter.
Started life as a Blinker. Had the fat washed Rye taunting me in the cabinet and turned things more citrusy. Smells and tastes smoky, beautiful mouthfeel.
