william of orange

1 1/2 oz Bols Genever
1/2 oz Benedictine
1/2 oz Punt e Mes
1/2 oz Aperol
2 dash Orange Bitters

Stir with ice and strain into a rocks glass. Twist an orange peel over the top.
The last drink of the night at Bartenders on the Rise was Green Street's own Emily Stanley. While I was surprised by Bobby McCoy's choice of base spirit, I was not surprised to know that Emily chose Genever for she is our local brand ambassador for Bols Genever. Her drink, the William of Orange, started with an Aperol and malty Genever nose. The drink was rather richly flavored with Benedictine's herbal and Punt e Mes' grape flavors in the middle of the sip. The swallow was replete with bitter notes especially that sharp wormwood-like one in Bols Genever.
