Two Wednesday ago, I turned to Beta Cocktails for nightcap ideas. Of the untried ones, Maksym Pazuniak's A Moment of Silence definitely called out to me. The pairing of Averna and apricot liqueur was one elegantly showcased in the inelegantly named Averna Jimjam, and here instead of lemon juice, the drying effects of Angostura Bitters along with a spirit backbone of rye and apple brandy fulfill the role.
