1 1/2 oz Rittenhouse Bonded Rye
1/2 oz Laird's Bonded Apple Brandy
1/2 oz Amaro Nonino
1/2 oz Dubonnet Rouge
1/4 oz Grenadine

Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe.
Two Wednesdays, I wanted to crack open my new addition to my shelves of Amaro Nonino, and I started with the Solstice from the PDT Cocktail Book. The recipe was crafted by John Deragon in the summer of 2007 for the other solstice -- the winter one which is the shortest and darkest day of the year. The Solstice donated an apple and red fruit aroma to the nose. Next, berry, cherry, and grape notes on the sip faded into rye, apple, and orange flavors on the swallow.
