2 oz Bourbon
1⁄2 oz Aperol
1 ds Bitters, Angostura (10 drops)
1 twst Orange peel
1 rinse Allspice Dram

Stir, strain into old fashioned glass with a large cube or sphere. Garnish with an orange swath and a few spritzes of allspice liqueur from an atomizer.


Originally made with Black Maple Hill bourbon (likely the NAS 95 proof orange label, not the age stated black or green label product). I typically use Elijah Craig Small Batch (now sadly also NAS).

This is one of the finest cocktails I’ve ever tasted. One of the best uses of Nux Alpina ever! Thanks!
