Rue Bourbon

Adapted from a recipe by Dominic Whisson, The American Bar at the Savoy Hotel, London, England, UK.

“The drink was created to represent different cultures coming to New Orleans. Most importantly, Bourbon Street,” Dominic Whisson.

50 ml (1.7 oz) bourbon, (preferably Woodford Reserve)rue bourbon - Copy

10ml (.33 oz) Pedro Ximenez sherry

10ml (.33 oz) Cocchi Americano

1 teaspoon Wolfshmidt Kümmel

3 dashes creole bitters

1 lemon twist, as an aromatic garnish

1 orange twist, as an aromatic garnish

Stir over block ice and strain into a chilled rocks glass or a small cobbler glass  over one large ice cube.  Express the oils from both twists over the drink, and discard the twists.

gaz sez:  I hope the Good Lord will forgive me for using his name this way, but Jesus H. Christ this drink is all over the bloody map!  Brilliantly balanced, and as complex a draft as you ever did taste.  Make me another, please.
