without a trace

1 1/2 oz Buffalo Trace Bourbon (Angel's Envy)
1/2 oz Amaro Nonino
1/2 oz Honey Syrup
1/2 oz Lemon Juice

Stir with ice, strain into an absinthe-rinsed old fashioned glass with a large ice cube, and garnish with an orange twist.
Two Wednesdays ago, I picked Nico Martini's Texas Cocktails book out of the library and spotted the Without a Trace. This recipe was crafted at Bar 1919 in San Antonio, and the combination reminded me of a Black Manhattan and a Gold Rush mash-up akin to the Rose Gold. Once prepared, the Without a Trace donated an orange, honey, and anise bouquet to the nose. Next, the honey and lemon mingled on the sip, and the swallow displayed the Bourbon and orange-herbal flavors.
