widow's word

3/4 oz Calvados or Apple Brandy (Laird's Bonded)
3/4 oz Yellow Chartreuse
3/4 oz Benedictine
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
1 dash Angostura Bitters

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
Two Fridays ago, I decided to start my post-work nightcaps with a drink from Boston cocktail enthusiast and old booze bottle collector Eric Witz via his Instagram. Like his Red Right Hook that mashed up two (neo)classics, here Eric merged the Last Word with the Widow's Kiss. Once prepared, the Widow's Word shared an herbal and clove aroma. Next, autumn arrived to the palate with lemon, honey, and lemon on the sip and spiced apple on the swallow.
