no sleep till brookline

1 1/2 oz Four Roses Bourbon
1 oz Amaro Montenegro
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Simple Syrup
1 dash Angostura Bitters

Shake with ice and strain into a rocks glass with fresh ice. Garnish with a lemon twist and add straws.
For a last libation at Fairsted Kitchen, I asked bartender Alex Homans for the No Sleep Till Brookline. Alex explained how this was Patrick Gaggiano's drink for the opening menu that pays tribute to its Brookline location. Once mixed, it offered a lemon oil aroma that transitioned well into a lemon juice and malt sip. The swallow then showcased the rest of the Bourbon flavors in addition to the Amaro Montenegro's herbal and orange ones.
