Idle Hands

1 12 oz Reposado Tequila, Siete Leguas Reposado
1 oz Gewurztraminer (Anthony Nappa Wines Spezia Gewurztraminer)
12 oz Curaçao, Pierre Ferrand Dry Curaçao
14 oz Averna
2 ds Hellfire Habanero Shrub, Bittermens
Instructions
Stir, strain, coupe, garnish with a dried chile de arbol.
Notes
The wine is from the North Fork of Long Island, and is made in a dryish style from heavily botrytized grapes. The best approximation might be an Alsace VT Gewurz with a thread of saffron infused into it for a few minutes.
