That Scofflaw sounds nice and I have a bit of NP vermouth left over that is crying out to be used soon! Went with a Chrysanthemum cocktail last night to help solve that little problem.
Just had another "My Favorite Mechanic Is A Woman" at the delightful Cakes and Ale in Decatur, GA. Its a lovely drink for a warm steamy evening even though the recent front has cooled things down a bit here the past few days. It is a 1/1/1/1 blend of bourbon, limoncello, lemon juice and Canton ginger liqueur with an egg white for texture and topped off with a Luxardo cherry in a tall glass over ice.
It gets occasional mention in Atlanta area cocktail blogs such as this one - Decatur "Cocktail Crawl"
Don't recall off hand what the bourbon the restaurant used but I will probably not be using anything super fancy at home given the mixture with limoncello and Canton. Perhaps the Knob Creek 9yo would work well to give it a little extra bite. My current limoncello brand is Pallini.
Might try what I did with the Tequila Mockingbird 2 and substitute the Pallini raspicello for the limoncello to see what effect that has. I liked it in the TM2 but it did make it a sweeter concoction as compared to the more tart version with limoncello. Haven't tried the Pallini peachcello but that might be worth a try as well.
Just need more freezer space...
