For Andrea's first drink at the Baldwin Bar at Sichuan Garden II, she asked bartender Joel Atlas for the Triple Crown which turned out to be another of Ran Duan's creations. The amaro in this Bobby Burns variation was created along with the Brovo Distillery by bartender Mike Ryan who works at Sable in Chicago. The Brovo site describes #14 as, "Mike's amaro starts with Guatemalan chocolate married to thyme for a savory flavor. It moves through cinnamon, sarsaparilla, angelica, and vanilla. It finishes with a strong Gentian finish and is sweetened with agave nectar. It is a sophisticated chocolate flavor."
