1 1/2 oz Linie Aquavit (Aalborg)
3/4 oz Noilly Prat Dry Vermouth
1/2 oz Amaro Meletti
1 tsp Luxardo Maraschino
1 dash Angostura Bitters

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a lemon twist.
After my work shift two Saturdays ago, I reached for the NoMad Cocktail Book for a nightcap. There, I was intrigued by Jessica Gonzalez's Argyle that came across like an aquavit Brooklyn rift. Once prepared, the Argyle knitted a lemon and caraway aroma. Next, caramel and cherry notes on the sip wove into caraway, nutty cherry, herbal, and floral flavors on the swallow. Overall, I was impressed at how well the aquavit and Maraschino interacted in the glass.
