hissy fit

1 1/2 oz Old Grand-Dad Bourbon (OGD Bonded)
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz St. Germain (St. Elder)
1/2 oz Crème de Cassis (Massenez)

Shake with ice and strain into a rocks glass with ice (cocktail coupe sans ice).
On Monday two weeks ago, I set forth on my drinking adventure by opening up the Brooklyn Bartender. There, I was drawn to the Hissy Fit by Josh Ropson of the Vanderbilt for the combination of the highs of elderflower liqueur and the lows of crème de cassis reminded me of the Lion Tamer from Beretta. Once in the glass, the Hissy Fit shared floral, red fruit, and Bourbon aromas. Next, dark fruit and lemon combined into an almost grapefruit flavor on the sip, and the swallow gave forth whiskey, currant, peach, and floral notes.
