1 1⁄2 oz Bourbon
3⁄4 oz Ramazzotti
1⁄4 oz Campari
3⁄4 oz Lemon juice
1⁄4 oz Simple syrup

Shake, strain, up. For extra credit, top with a "cloud" of Licor 43 or Galliano foam (see note).


For foam... In a cream whipper: 2 egg whites, 3 oz. Licor 43 or Galliano, 1.5 oz. lemon juice, 1 oz. cold water. Shake for 30 seconds, charge (twice if desired) with N2O, shake another 30 seconds and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Kept refrigerated, foam should be good for up to 1 week.


A spirit-forward Paper Airplane variation using the oft-misquoted Ramazzotti.
