Stir with ice and strain into a rocks glass.
If I hear "is it sweet?/looks too sweet", modify it to your taste/move on or I'll laugh at you. Go 1 1/4 for the big ingredients and 1/4 oz for the smaller ones if you prefer things more austere, but I liked it this way for its richness.
I was recently reminded of the Up Jumped the Devil and was inspired to riff on it. That drink featured the mezcal-rhum agricole combination that I was first introduced to in the Chantico and Wilhelm Scream at Craigie on Main, and I have used a few times. Instead of the Cynar-Green Chartreuse duo in the Up Jumped the Devil, I opted for the apricot-Benedictine one that I first noted in the Silk Road Sour and utilized in drinks like the Bedford Nest. For a name, I stayed with the original's Nick Cave concept and dubbed this one Stranger than Kindness.
