new stone wall

1 1/2 oz Laird's Bonded Apple Brandy
1/2 oz Banks 5 Island Rum
1/2 oz Amaro Montenegro
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Cinnamon Syrup

Shake with ice and strain into a coupe glass.

Two Mondays ago, Andrea and I ventured over to the Citizen Public House after getting Tasty Burger for dinner. There, bartenders Sean Frederick and Sabrina Kershaw were eager to show off the new menu items on their drink list. For a start, I asked Sean for the New Stone Wall which is their modern reinterpretation of the rum and hard cider Stone Wall (or Fence). Actually, the spirit in the Stone Wall can vary by locale and time period, and the one from Green Street in the link is made with Bourbon instead.

True to the original, the New Stone Wall offered up an apple aroma. The apple joined the lime juice in the sip, and it continued on into the swallow where it communed with the Amaro Montenegro's herbal and cinnamon syrup's spice notes.
