Belle Starr

About this Cocktail

For the Women of the Wild West-themed Whiskey and Amari night I did with Katie Emmerson (Hawthorne/Death & Co. alum) at the Blue Room in 2013, I crafted the Belle Starr. Belle Starr fell in love with a bank robber, joined the gang, and entered upon a life of rustling, horse stealing and bootlegging whiskey to Indians.

For a starting point to this tribute, I considered the Marconi Wireless-like Star Cocktail and then I crossed with the Green Point (or a Strega variation of it called the Nonantum Cocktail). The Woxum from the Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Book came to mind later too.

Ingredients:
  • 3/4 oz American Whiskey (originally Bully Boy Aged Whiskey)
  • 3/4 oz Apple Brandy
  • 1 oz Bonal Gentian Quina
  • 1/2 oz Strega
  • 1 dash Orange Bitters
Preparation:

Stir with ice and strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.
