immigrant song

1 1/4 oz Rye Whiskey (Old Overholt)
3/4 oz Linie Aquavit (North Shore Private Reserve Aquavit)
1/2 oz Amontillado Sherry (Grant's La Garrocha)
1/4 oz Apricot Liqueur (Combier)
2 dash Celery Bitters (housemade)

Stir with ice, strain into a ice-filled rocks glass (cocktail coupe sans ice), and garnish with a lemon twist.
For the cocktail hour two Sundays ago, I reached for Food & Wine: Cocktails 2016 and landed upon the Immigrant Song by Jessica Sanders of Drink.Well in Austin. Once stirred and strained, the drink proffered a lemon aroma from the twist with light apricot notes from the liqueur. Next, a dry grape with hints of orchard fruit on the sip transitioned into rye, nutty sherry, and apricot on the swallow with a herbal-vegetal finish of celery and dill.
