holy joe

1 1/2 oz Jameson Irish Whiskey (Teeling Small Batch)
3/4 oz Sweet Vermouth (Cocchi)
1/2 oz Apricot Liqueur (Rothman & Winter)
1/4 oz Cynar

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail glass, and garnish with a lemon twist.
For a nightcap two Thursdays ago, I turned to Imbibe Magazine online and spotted the Holy Joe by John Robinson of The Hive in Bentonville, Arkansas. This Irish whiskey drink paired apricot liqueur with Cynar which has worked rather well in the One One Thousand, Library Card, and other drinks. Once prepared, the Holy Joe gave forth a lemon and apricot nose that led into grape, malt, and orchard fruit notes on the sip. Next, the Irish whiskey was complemented by earthy-bitter and apricot flavors on the swallow.
