long story short

1 1/2 oz Old Forester Signature Bourbon (Evan Williams Bonded)
1/2 oz Smith & Cross Rum
1/2 tsp Cinnamon Syrup
1/2 tsp Demerara Syrup
1/2 tsp Giffard Passion Fruit Liqueur (Passion Fruit Syrup)
1 dash Bitter Truth's Jerry Thomas Decanter Bitters

Stir with ice, strain into a rocks glass with a large ice cube, and garnish with an orange twist.
Two Sundays ago, I began perusing the Death & Co. Welcome Home book and spotted Jeremy Oertel's Long Story Short. This 2017 recipe reminded me of the African Queen that I had two weeks prior given the Old Fashioned structure accented by passion fruit liqueur (and where I utilized passion fruit syrup instead). Once prepared, the Long Story Short gave forth an orange, tropical funk, and cinnamon aroma. Next, caramel and a hint of fruit on the sip flowed into Bourbon, funky rum, and cinnamon flavors on the swallow with a tropical finish.
