world's fair

1 1/2 oz Willet Rye
3/4 oz Amaro Montenegro
3/4 oz Punt e Mes
1/2 oz Nux Alpina Walnut Liqueur
1 dash Fee's Whiskey Barrel Bitters

Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe. Serve with a cherry-orange peel flag garnish.
The other drink from the upstairs Baldwin & Sons Trading Co. bar that bartender Raul Zelaya made for us at the downstairs Baldwin Bar at Sichuan Garden II was the World's Fair created by Vannaluck Hongthong. The drink turned out to be a rather Winter-feeling Manhattan riff that began with a grape aroma and a grape and malt sip. The flavor profile rounded out with a rye, nutty, bitter, and tangerine citrus swallow and a cinnamon finish.

What is that in the background?

A sidecar on ice with the rest of the cocktail (and the garnish). It's how they serve the drinks at the upstairs bar (not at the downstairs one) akin to the "Martini Service" trend.
