2 oz Bourbon
3⁄4 oz Plum shrub
1⁄2 oz Amaro, Amaro di Angostura
3 lf Mint (Muddle with other ingredients, then remove)

Combine all ingredients, gently muddle the mint to express its oils, then remove the mint. Shake the rest with ice and serve straight up.


I made the shrub by chopping up a ripe plum into cubes and tossing it into a jar with an equal amount of sugar. Once all of the liquid was extracted after a few days, I removed the plum pieces, and I added an equal amount of apple vinegar. My ratio was 1/2 cup plum, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup vinegar.
