I have an obsession with good Cassis and trying to force (not really, but maybe kind of) people to drink sherry. So I messed around with ingredients and took some inspiration from the Flamenco; naturally pairing the Amontillado with the Genever. To give it some spunk I decided to use our delicious house smoked syrup.
Revenge is a drink best served neat.
1 oz Alvear Amontillado
3/4 oz De Vine Genever
1/2 oz Odd Society Crème de Cassis
1 oz Fresh Lemon
1/2 oz Fresh Orange
1/3 oz Smoked Syrup*
Garnish: Dehydrated orange
Combine ingredients into shaker glass, fill shaker 2/3s full with ice and shake till shaker is frosted. Double strain into chilled rocks glass. Drop dehyrdated orange and serve.
*Smoked syrup is made easily if your kitchen has a smoker. Pour some water into a shallow hotel pan and smoke it. Take smoked water and make into simple syrup. We do 1:1 (sugar:water), but 2:1 works just as nice.
