About this Cocktail

My take on a Maiden's Prayer, but turned into a shim. Can't get enough of this Kina L'Avion d'Or, and I've been unable to stop tinkering with it. Wash of apricots, apples and quinine, cleaned with a big earthy finish. This is a ride for the palate, strange and complex from start to finish.

  • 1.5oz Kina L'Avion d'Or
  • 1oz Amontillado Sherry (Lustau)
  • .5oz Calvados (Daron)
  • .33oz Apricot Liqueur (Rothman & Winter)
  • 1 dash Orange Bitters (Regan's)

Stir, strain into chilled coupe. Orange peel garnish. Put in "Number of the Beast," and try not to spill while headbanging.

    I need to get a bottle of the Kina L'Avion d'Or. I keep seeing amazing looking drinks that make use of it.

    Plus the classics that call for quinquina that let this shine, like a corpse reviver #2 or a vesper!
