1 1⁄2 oz Bourbon (full proof)
1 oz Campari
1⁄2 oz Lemon juice
1 t Apricot jam

Shake. Strain into a coupe. Garnish with lemon peel.


Full proof bourbon was all I had. A tad overpowering so it needed a good long shake.


Using up apricot preserves a friend brought back from vacation, I riffed on the Italian Gentleman and the Breakfast Bourbon to get a gentleman who stays over.
