plymouth street harvest

3/4 oz Rittenhouse Rye
3/4 oz Laird's 100 Proof Apple Brandy
1 oz Punt e Mes
1/2 oz Lustau Pedro Ximenez Sherry

Stir with ice, strain into a rocks glass, and garnish with orange oil from a twist.
A few Sundays ago, Andrea and I finally were able to score two seats at the bar at Little Donkey. For a first drink, I asked bartender Seth Corliss for the Plymouth Street Harvest. Seth described how this was his creation and how he was inspired by the 1919 Cocktail formula to craft this autumnal-themed libation. Once in the glass, the Plymouth Street Harvest shared an orange oil aroma over that of the sherry and Punt e Mes' grape notes. Next, the grape continued on into the sip where it mingled with the brandy's apple flavors, and the swallow presented rye, raisin, and bitter elements. Indeed, the pairing of Pedro Ximinez sherry and Punt e Mes worked as wonderfully here as it did in the Jack of No Trade.
