Wooden Shoe

Apple brandy and Genever work so well together and both are awesome with Cardamaro. Throw in some herbal accents from the Widow's Kiss, and then you have the Wooden Shoe!
34 oz Genever
34 oz Apple brandy (Aged such as a VS Calvados or Laird's Bonded)
1 oz Cardamaro
14 oz Bénédictine
14 oz Yellow Chartreuse
2 ds Peychaud's Bitters
1 twst Lemon peel (As garnish)
Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a lemon twist.
Earthy, malty, herbal.
I was inspired by a tasty Genever-Cardamaro drink and reading about apple brandy-Cardamaro duo on the Haus Alpenz site, and I wondered if I could fuse the two ideas. The apple brandy aspect made me think of the Widow's Kiss and its Benedictine-Yellow Chartreuse accents. For a name, I looked up Dutch fairy tales to support the Genever ingredient and was inspired by the "The Legend of the Wooden Shoe."
