rhymes with orange

2 oz Wild Turkey 101° Rye (Rittenhouse)
1 oz Carpano Antica Sweet Vermouth (Cocchi)
1/8 oz Laphroaig Scotch
1/2 oz Ramazzotti Amaro
17 drop Bittercube Orange Bitters (1 dash Angostura Orange)
Two Saturdays ago after my first bar shift back after traveling, I turned to The Bartender's Manifesto by Toby Maloney with Emma Janzen and landed upon Toby's 2011 Rhymes with Orange that he created at the Violet Hour in Chicago. Once prepared, the cocktail conjured up orange and rye aromas. Next, grape and caramel notes swirled on the sip, and the swallow wrapped things up with rye, grape, smoke, and caramel-orange flavors with a peaty finish.
