criminal mastermind

1 1/2 oz Bourbon (Four Roses)
1 oz Amaro Ramazzotti
1/2 oz Dry Sack Oloroso Sherry (Lustau)

Stir with ice and strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with lemon oil.
Two Sundays ago for the cocktail hour, I decided to make one of the recipes that Erick Castro posted on his Instagram from his night bartending at Harvard & Stone in Los Angeles. The Criminal Mastermind caught my attention not only for its name but for its Boulevardier-like composition. Once assembled, it offered a lemon oil aroma that later gave way to orange-tinged grape notes. Next, caramel and grape on the sip led into Bourbon, nutty, and dark-orange flavors on the swallow.
