six weeks since punxsutawney

1 1/2 oz Wild Turkey 101 Bourbon (Old Forester 100°)
1 oz Averna
1 oz Carpano Bianco Vermouth (Dolin Blanc)
1/4 oz Combier Grapefruit Liqueur (St. Elder)

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail glass, and garnish with a grapefruit twist.
Two Thursdays ago, I spotted an interesting recipe on ShakeStir from Timothy Miner of the Long Island Bar called the Six Weeks Since Punxsutawney. This 2014 recipe must have been for a Spring-themed competition for the name refers to the month and a half wait if the infamous Pennsylvania groundhog sees his shadow on February 2nd. Once prepared, the Six Weeks Since Punxsutawney greeted the senses with a floral and grapefruit bouquet. Next, a caramel sip launched into Bourbon, grapefruit, and herbal flavors on the swallow.
