I'm trying to get better acquainted with drinks balanced through spirits and bitters without the use of citrus. I have more difficulty enjoying some of these than other types of drinks so I think I need to make it my mission to learn to appreciate them more. Tonight I tried this one from Imbibe...
The Remaining Balance
1 oz. Grand Marnier
3/4 oz. sweeter single malt whisky (Highland Park 12
3/4 oz. Islay single malt whisky (Laphroaig Quarter Cask
2 dashes Ramazotti amaro (Lucano, don't know enough about amari to know if that's a suitable sub but it's what I have
3 dashes Angostura bitters
1 dash grapefruit bitters
Stir, strain, lemon twist.
Tomorrow will be a break from the above mission. Apparently it's "international talk like a pirate day". I don't plan to talk like a pirate but I think I'll mix up a rum drink or three and drink like one.
It's kinda like wrestling a gorilla... you don't stop when you're tired, you stop when the gorilla is tired.
