old money

2 oz Bourbon (Old Forester 100°)
1/2 oz Aperol
2 bsp Nux Alpina (1/4 oz Russo Nocino)
1 dash Angostura Bitters

Stir with ice, strain into a double old fashioned glass with a large ice cube, and garnish with an orange twist and a spritz of allspice dram (3 drop Hamilton's).
Two Wednesdays ago, I spied the Old Money on Kindred Cocktails by Benjamin Schiller at Boka in Chicago circa 2009. Overall, the combination reminded me of a whiskey version of the Cognac-based Mr. Burgess. Here, the Old Money welcomed the senses with an orange, allspice, and walnut bouquet. Next, malt, berry, and darker notes on the sip passed into Bourbon, orange, and walnut flavors on the swallow with an allspice and clove finish.
