the trembler

2 oz Aged Rhum Agricole (Depaz)
1/2 oz Dry Vermouth (Noilly Prat)
1/2 oz Apricot Liqueur (Rothman & Winter)
1/2 tsp Honey (1 tsp Honey Syrup)

Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with an orange twist.
After the Undiscovered Country, I turned to the most recent issue of Imbibe Magazine and selected the Trembler as my nightcap. The Trembler was created by Lindsay Nader at San Diego's Noble Experiment and reminded me in structure to the El Presidente. On the nose, the drink offered an orange and grassy aroma. Next, honey with a hint of orchard fruit on the sip led into grassy rum transitioning into apricot on the swallow.
