triple crown

1 oz Bourbon (Old Tub Bonded)
3/4 oz Grapefruit Liqueur (St. Elder)
3/4 oz Amaro Montenegro
3/4 oz Lemon Juice

Shake with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a lemon twist.
Two Mondays ago, I returned to Carey Jones' Brooklyn Bartender and spied the nearly equal parts Triple Crown. This recipe by Jay Zimmerman of Ba'sik reminded me of drinks like the Hurly Burly and Hoop La, and it would make good use of my new grapefruit liqueur purchase. In the glass, the Triple Crown presented a lemon oil aroma over Bourbon and grapefruit notes. Next, a lemon and tangerine sip conjured up thoughts about peaches, and the swallow came through with Bourbon, grapefruit, and tangerine flavors.
