salary man

2 oz Famous Grouse Scotch
1 oz Carpano Sweet Vermouth (Cocchi)
1/2 oz Amaro Nonino

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe pre-rinsed with absinthe (Kübler), and garnish with 9 drops Bittercube Cherry Bark Vanilla Bitters (King Floyd's Cherry-Cacao).
Two Fridays ago, I ventured into the North Star Cocktails book and spotted the Salary Man by Minneapolis bartender Rob Jones. This Bobby Burns riff began with a chocolate, anise, and orange bouquet. Next, caramel and grape on the sip earned its way into a Scotch, orange, and cherry swallow with an anise finish.
