human rocket

1 1/2 oz Bulleit Bourbon
1/2 oz Rothman & Winter Apricot Liqueur
1/2 oz Nux Alpina Walnut Liqueur
1/2 oz Suze Gentiane Liqueur

Stir with ice and strain into a rocks glass.

For my second drink at Brick & Mortar, I asked bartender Kenny Belanger if he had the recipes from the Spin the Bottle event in late February that featured Hollis Bulleit on the turntables as the DJ for the evening. The drink that caught my eye, the Human Rocket, was crafted by Misty Kalkofen; I surmise that this fruity, nutty, and bitter Bourbon drink was named after a DEVO song, but I did not ask that night to confirm. It also seemed like a fruitier variation of Misty's Penn Cocktail that she crafted for the Ivy League College menu last autumn.

The Human Rocket offered up a walnut aroma, and some of those notes bled into the sip along with the Bourbon's malt flavors. Next, the whiskey's barrel notes came through on the beginning of the swallow followed by apricot, gentian, and the rest of the walnut.
