A couple items... First,

A couple items...

First, this is a Troy Sidle creation (though I wouldn't be surprised if Toby was somehow involved in the final spec).

Also, the "official" recipe has since been posted online:

2 oz Wild Turkey 101
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
3/4 oz Simple Syrup
1/4 oz Fernet-Branca
3 Blackberries
9 drops orange bitters

Lightly muddle the blackberries with the simple, add the other ingredients & shake with ice.
Put a bit of Coca-Cola in the bottom of a Collins glass, add 'shard' ice (tall, rectangular).
Strain shaker contents into prepared glass and garnish with an orange peel.
