A monk's redemption...get it?
|1 3⁄8||oz||Gin, Ransom|
|2||ds||Bitters, Scrappy's Aromatic|
Shake on ice, strain in vessel of choice.
Possibly garnish with a Luxardo if desired. But taste it first, particularly as it comes back up from the chill of the ice. Neither Ransom nor Benedictine are optional, they both are unique and complementary. The Scrappy's could be optional or other bitters substituted.
Serendipity in western Pennsylvania in January of 2013: an otherwise discriminating, savvy, fellow proletariat found distasteful a new bottle of Ransom AND I "agreed" with him and took it for free. Then a random bystander thought it was bourbon or rye. When I chanced the odd truth by saying gin, he immediately said: - Ransom and extolled its virtues. My cover was blown!
