Two Fridays ago after my shift at work, I turned to the Canon Cocktail Book for my night's treat. There, I happened upon the Union Club that they based on the Campari-orange juice pairing and named after an old saloon in Seattle run briefly by Wyatt Earp. Once built, the Union Club began with a Bourbon and bitter orange aroma that later led into a more Maraschino-driven nose. On the palate, the sip was filled with orange and malt notes, and the swallow paired the whiskey and nutty flavors all with a bitter finish.
