For a drink of the day Loyal Nine, I was inspired by the name of choke hold in submission grappling called the Peruvian Necktie. Clearly, the spirit had to be pisco, and I decided to go the Benedictine-apricot liqueur direction after having experienced a few drinks with it. Here, the sweetness was countered by lime juice, and the herbal notes were brightened by a light touch of absinthe since Angostura took the drink in a very dark direction. To tie it back to the name, I garnished with a knotted long orange twist.
