debbie, don't

1 oz Reposado Tequila (Lunazul)
1 oz Averna
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Maple Syrup (Merton's)

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe.

Two Tuesday ago, I decided to make one of the recipes that I spotted while reading Sasha Petraska: Regarding Cocktails called the Debbie, Don't. The recipe was crafted by Zachary Gelnaw-Rubin at Dutch Kills and named after the ghost who haunts the bar's bathrooms. The tie in to Sasha is that he helped to open the bar and rather enjoyed this drink when he used to visit for he touted it as the best Averna cocktail he has ever had.
The Debbie, Don't gave forth a caramel, dark maple, and vegetal agave nose. The Averna's caramel continued on into the sip where it mingled with the crisp lemon, and the swallow paired the tequila with rich maple notes.
