|2||oz||Bourbon, Jim Beam Black|
|3||ds||Chocolate bitters, Bittermens Xocolatl Mole|
|1||twst||Lemon peel (as garnish)|
Combine, add ice, stir and strain into a chilled coupe or an Old Fashioned glass. Express lemon peel, rub around rim and drop into cocktail. May also be served over one large ice cube if you so desire.
My homage to the nostalgia of the classic Speakeasy. Though more true to the golden age of cocktails, when all you needed was a spirit, sugar, lemon and some bitters.

- Used some Benedictine with whiskey instead of bourbon (all out), and a bit of maple syrup instead of simple (less). Nice sipper
- Like a nice, mildly chocolatey Sazerac. Accessible, for such a boozy drink.
- Tastes like a bitter Tootsie Roll.
- 2:1:1/4, 4 to 5 drops
- Simple but interesting. Would be worth trying with some other amaro/bitter combos...including bittermens mole, not Fees. Comes in hot, so maybe push cynar to a full oz.
- Subbed 1/8 oz maple syrup for simple (we like our drinks less sweet). Chocolatey. Could be really great for autumn.
