the dapper little gent

1 1/2 oz Pisco (Macchu Pisco)
1/2 oz Campari
1/2 oz Oloroso Sherry (Lustau)
3/4 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Simple Syrup
2 dash Cinnamon Bitters (Fee's Whiskey Barrel)

Shake with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a lime wheel.
For a nightcap two Sundays ago, we ended the evening with a recipe from Chris Resnick while at Cardinal Spirits via the BarNotes app. The recipe was the 2013 Dapper Little Gent that reminded me of two other drinks created that year, namely the 2011 and the Stagecoach Mary due to the sherry-Campari and Campari-pisco pairings, respectively. Once prepared, the Dapper Little Gent gave forth lime, nutty grape, and almost floral notes from the pisco to the nose. Next, lime and sherry's grape combined on the sip, and the swallow proffered pisco with nutty sherry melding into bitter orange flavors.
