5th amendment

1 3/4 oz Bourbon (Angel's Envy)
1/2 oz Velvet Falernum
1/4 oz Yellow Chartreuse
1/4 oz Fernet Branca
2 dash Hawaii Bitters Lilikoi Bitters (Bittermens Burlesque)

Stir with ice, strain into a rock glass with a large ice cube, and garnish with a lemon twist.
Two Sundays ago, I decided to make a recipe that I had spotted earlier in the week in Punch Drinks called the 5th Amendment by David Thor Newman of Pint & Jigger in Honolulu. Since I had a chance to meet Dave in Louisville as we visited the Angel's Envy distillery for training in late January, I figured that utilizing their port-finished Bourbon would be quite apropos. The 5th Amendment welcomed the senses with a lemon, menthol, and Bourbon aroma. Next, malt with a hint of caramel and honey on the sip passed into whiskey, herbal, menthol, and ginger flavors on the swallow.
