Paper Trail

1 14 oz Bourbon (1 1/2 according to Imbibe)

Stir, strain, up, twist.
Very nice. A light, fruity, earthy Boulevardier alternative.
From other users
  • Made with Amer Sauvage (and 1 1/2 oz bourbon). As usual the first sip was too intense, but thereafter really enjoyable. Candy of Aperol balanced earthy bitter of the gentian. — ☆☆☆☆
  • I tried this with both 1.5 and 1.25 but the 1.25 had a much better balanced composition. — ☆☆☆
  • Shockingly easy drinking — ☆☆☆☆☆

I remember Colin telling me

I remember Colin telling me that Imbibe screwed up the recipe slightly and it should actually be 1.25 oz bourbon. Either way it makes a fine drink.
