1 oz White Rum (Turkey Shore)
1 oz Orange Juice
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Orgeat (BG Reynolds)
1 dash Angostura Bitters

The drink was created by Yao Lu of Houston's Anvil Bar & Refuge, and I would surmise that the name is a tribute to the Eagles song. After swizzling, the Witchy Woman offered an orange aroma from the garnish that joined the Campari notes. An orange, lime, and Campari sip was followed by a rum and orgeat swallow than finished with the rest of the Campari flavors.
