The Ticket that Exploded

A Negroni riff of sorts inspired by the concept of a limited bottle selection.
12 oz Mezcal
12 oz Jamaican rum (Funky, i.e.: not Appleton)
1 oz Aromatized wine, Cocchi Americano (Lillet Blanc is a good choice too.)
12 oz Campari
12 oz Bénédictine
1 twst Orange peel (as garnish)
Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with an orange twist.
Orange, smoke, and citrus aromas. Orange and peach notes on the sip. Vegetal agave, funky rum, bitter orange, herbal, and smoke flavors on the swallow.
A Negroni riff created after thinking about the limited bottles at a bar I was doing a trial shift at; the drink remains, but I never took the position. Named after a William S. Burroughs cut-up style novel.

  • Sweet — ☆☆☆☆
  • Peachy delicious, top 50. — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Strong & sweet, a texture almost syrupy. We accidentally shook, not stirred, but the drink is still delicious. Reminiscent of a Jasmine. — ☆☆☆☆

I originally made it at home

I originally made it at home with Smith & Cross (since that's the only interesting bottle of rum I remember that bar having).
