Devil’s Soul

Adapted from a recipe by Ted Kilgore, Taste, St. Louis, MO.

“This drink falls into the category I like to call short and evil. Created for Halloween.” Ted Kilgore.

45 ml (1.5 oz) Rittenhouse rye whiskey

15 ml (.5 oz) Sombra mezcal

15 ml (.5 oz) Averna amaro

7.5 ml (.25 oz) St. Germain

7.5 ml (.25 oz) Aperol

1 orange twist, as garnish

Stir over ice for 30 to 45 seconds and strain into a chilled coupe. Flame the twist over the drink, then add as garnish.
gaz sez: Yet again Ted Kilgore, the Crazy Bastard from Missouri, put together ingredients that absolutely positively do not belong in the same glass. And yet again he’s come up with a fabulous drink. Well done, Ted. You Crazy Bastard.
