indian summer

1 1/2 oz Michter's Bourbon (Old Grand-Dad Bonded)
1/2 oz Cantaloupe Syrup (Sharlyn Melon Syrup)
2 dash Angostura Bitters

Stir with ice, strain into a rocks glass with ice, and garnish with a lemon twist and a shaved melon slice (omit).
When Andrea brought home a melon, I recalled that there was a recipe in Clair McLafferty's The Classic & Craft Cocktail Recipe Book. That melon number was the Indian Summer by Jared Schubert of Louisville, Kentucky, and those flavors rounded out a Bourbon Old Fashioned. In the glass, the Indian Summer offered floral, lemon, melon, and clove aromas. Next, a malt-driven sip led into Bourbon, floral, melon, clove, and allspice flavors on the swallow.
