About this Cocktail

As Halloween was approaching, I decided to craft this Autumnal smoky and bitter number as a The Misfits musical tribute. I was inspired by the Fall on Me to create a music-themed drink that utilized the apricot-herbal liqueur combination, and The Misfits fit the then approaching holiday. For this concept's herbal liqueur, I opted for Cynar which paired well with apricot in a few drinks, and apricot-Punt e Mes has proven to be a winner such as in the Slope. The song that matched the drink's and evening's feel was the Horror Hotel that they named after the 1960 movie.

Ingredients:
  • 1 oz Mezcal
  • 1/2 oz Aged Apple Brandy
  • 1/2 oz Punt e Mes
  • 1/2 oz Apricot Liqueur
  • 1/2 oz Cynar
  • 2 dash Fee's Whiskey Barrel Aged Bitters (*)
Preparation:

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with an orange twist.
(*) Sub Fee's Old Fashioned Bitters or another cinnamon-forward one.
