henry's dream

3/4 oz Rhum Agricole (Rhum Clement Premiere Canne)
3/4 oz Mezcal (Mezcal Union)
1/2 oz Punt e Mes
1/2 oz Cynar
1/2 oz Apricot Liqueur (Rothman & Winter)

Stir with ice and strain into an old fashioned glass.

Two Thursday ago, I decided to tinker and continue on with my rhum agricole-mezcal stirred drinks that started with Up Jumped the Devil and followed by Stranger than Kindness. This time I went with the Cynar-apricot duo that I learned to appreciate in the One One Thousand, and I utilized Punt e Mes to bolster the fruity and bitter notes. For a name, I kept with the Nick Cave song titles concept with Henry's Dream.
Henry's Dream conjured up apricot, smoke, and dark funk aromas to the nose. Next, caramel and orchard fruit on the sip aroused grassy, vegetal, and bitter-fruity flavors on the swallow.
