kitty hawk

1 1/2 oz Bourbon (Bulleit)
1/2 oz Kronan Swedish Punsch
1/2 oz Cocchi Americano
1/2 oz Velvet Falernum
3/4 oz Lemon Juice

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
Two Wednesdays ago, I spied an intriguing cocktail called the Kitty Hawk on the Kindred Cocktails database. The recipe was crafted by New York City bartender Rafa Garcia Febles in 2020, and the combination reminded me a little of the Corpse Reviver from Crosby Gaige's 1941 Cocktail Guide & Lady's Companion. Once built, the Kitty Hawk flew to the nose with a Bourbon, lemon, and caramel aroma. Next, lemon, caramel, and pear notes on the sip soared to Bourbon, tea, rum, clove, and ginger flavors on the swallow.
