About this Cocktail

I spent most of the night looking through the PDT and Savoy books and nothing really sounded like it would hit the spot after a day filled with screaming doctors and unhappy nurses. This Elijah Craig stuff is incredible and my love for Allspice Dram may be at an all time high. Double the standard shot of base spirit in this one. It's worth it.

  • 3 oz. Elijah Craig 12 year bourbon
  • .5 oz. Cherry Heering
  • .5 oz. St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram
  • .25 oz. Bénédictine
  • .25 oz. Demerara simple
  • 3 Dashes Woodford Reserve spiced cherry bitters
  • Lemon Zest

Drop rough cut Demerara into mixing glass. Add a few drops of water (roughly .25 oz) and 3 dashes of bitters to saturate the sugar. Muddle until sugar is fine. Add all liquids to mixing glass, add ice and stir 40 revs. Strain the mixture into rocks glass over ice, twist and rub lemon & savor every drop.
