1 1⁄2 oz Bourbon
3⁄4 oz Aperol
1⁄2 oz Lemon juice
1 t Blackberry preserves
3 dr Coffee Pecan Bitters (as garnish)
1 Star anise (as garnish)

Dry shake with Hawthorne sprig, shake again with ice, double strain into coupe. Pattern bitters on foam. Float star anise pod (starfish) on foam.


Fat wash for extra applause. The final drink should be the color of the Purple One.


All of us were ordinary compared to Cynthia Rose.
