fall in a glass

2 oz Don Q Añejo Rum
1 oz Lustau Oloroso Sherry
3/4 oz Orange Juice
1/4 oz Maple Syrup
2 dash Angostura Bitters

Shake with ice, strain into a cocktail glass, and garnish with freshly grated nutmeg.

Returning to my drink book shelf two Monday nights ago, I selected the new Waldorf Astoria Bar Book by Frank Caiafa, and spotted the house original Fall in a Glass that continued on with the maple syrup trend from the Handsome Jack. The combination reminded me of the Hannibal Hamlin with rum, maple, and orange juice, and the Dolores and Balmy Night with their rum, sherry, and orange juice.
The Fall in a Glass's nutmeg added woody spice on top of the nutty grape aroma. Next, the sherry's grape, richness from the maple, and smoothness from the orange juice combined on the sip, and the swallow presented rum along with the sherry's nutty grape melding into the maple flavors and with a clove finish.
