lucky wireless

3/4 oz Appleton Reserve Rum
3/4 oz Pierre Ferrand Cognac (Courvoisier VS)
3/4 oz Carpano Antica (Cocchi Sweet Vermouth)
3/4 oz Cinzano Sweet Vermouth (Cocchi Sweet Vermouth)
1 dash Peychaud's Bitters
1 dash Allspice Dram (1 bsp St. Elizabeth)

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a lemon twist.
Two Saturdays ago, I searched through the Brooklyn Bartender book for a nightcap. There, I uncovered Tyler Caffall's Lucky Wireless as his riff on the Marconi Wireless that he crafted at Fort Defiance. Since I only have one sweet vermouth at home, I combined the two volumes and utilized my medium bodied Cocchi Vermouth di Torino to span the range between the called for Carpano Antica and Cinzano. Once prepared, the Lucky Wireless offered lemon oil aromas over rum notes on the nose. Next, grape and barrel-aged caramel flavors filled the sip, and the swallow elegantly paired aged rum and brandy with an allspice finish.
