Think of this as what would happen if Arnold Palmer liked drinking while driving the golf cart as much as the rest of us.
There are a few variations of this floating around Charleston at the moment but I still go back to my version for the simplicity.
Love this as a summer cocktail.
2 oz Bulleit Rye
1 oz Averna amaro
1/2 oz lemon juice
1/2 oz simple syrup
Place all ingredients in a mixing glass with a stirring spoon from your collection. Fill glass with ice and stir for 30 seconds. Strain into a low ball over a cube. Garnish with an expressed lemon peel.
I resist the urge to shake this cocktail merely to retain the clarity to resemble a sweet tea. I am from Charleston after all.
