pop quiz

2 oz Elijah Craig Bourbon (Fighting Cock 103)
1/2 oz Amaro Ramazzotti
1 tsp Simple Syrup
2 dash Bittermens Mole Bitters

Stir with ice, strain into an old fashioned glass with a large ice cube, and garnish with an orange twist.
For my nightcap two Saturdays ago, I turned to the Old Fashioned section of the Cocktail Codex book. There, I locked on to Devin Tarby's 2010 Pop Quiz that fell into that Fancy Free style of liqueur-sweetened Old Fashioneds. Once mixed, the Pop Quiz donated orange, Bourbon, and cola aromas to the nose. Next, malt and caramel on the sip gave way to Bourbon, root beer, and chocolate notes on the swallow.
