3/4 oz Apple-Cinnamon Syrup (*)
1/2 oz Fernet Branca
2 dash Urban Moonshine Maple Bitters
Stir with ice and strain into a rocks glass.
(*) The syrup was made as a two-fold reduction of apple juice which was heated with cinnamon sticks (15 per gallon). Remove the cinnamon sticks and add an equal part of sugar.
The Wigglesworth's nose was a pleasing apple and cinnamon aroma, and the syrup surprisingly overpowered the Fernet and whiskey in this arena. The sip was a sweet whiskey flavor followed by cinnamon and Fernet's menthol note on the swallow. Lastly, there was an interesting lingering honey-like note at the end; when I mentioned this to Aaron, he attributed it to the honey-thick apple syrup.
