burlap & satin

1 1/2 oz Krogstad Aquavit
1 oz Pineapple Juice
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Aperol
1/2 oz Simple Syrup

Shake with ice, strain into a double old fashioned glass with ice, and garnish with a pineapple quarter and a cucumber noodle (lemon twist flower and cucumber slice).
Two Mondays ago, I reached for my copy of Drinking Like Ladies for the evening's libation. There, I decided upon Rhachel Shaw's Dolly Parton tribute that she created at Los Angeles' Harvard & Stone called the Burlap & Satin. Burlap & Satin was Dolly's 26th solo album that she released in 1983 that contained two tracks from the movie The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. Once prepared, the drink offered a cucumber, lemon, caraway, and star anise bouquet to the nose. Next, lemon with hints of pineapple and Aperol's orange on the sip slid into pineapple and caraway flavors on the swallow with a star anise finish.
