I created this drink in January 2014 while skiing in Vermont*. My girlfriend, some friends and I were staying at a rather hilarious but picturesque AirBnB house in Arlington. We arrived late in the evening, unpacked our bags, I unpacked my traveling Home Bar and the friends asked me to make a drink. This was that drink.
Soon afterwards I posted it on BarNotes and its has become my most popular cocktail on the site! Enjoy!
- 1 1/2 oz George Dickel Rye (Rittenhouse Rye would work well too)
- 1 oz Laird’s Applejack
- 1/2 oz Averna Amaro
- 2 dashes of Regans’ Orange Bitters
- Maraschino Cherry
Add ingredients to tin with cracked ice and stir. Strain into rocks glass and serve on the rocks. Maraschino Cherry garnish.
*Just a short word on Vermonty: I love Vermont, I love it so much that I usually just call it Vermonty. Its Green Mountains are stunning, its land-locked inhabitants are quiet, helpful and a bit reclusive, its Maple Syrup is abundant and its Skiing is thrilling!
