1 3/4 oz Bourbon (Four Roses)
1/2 oz Campari
1/2 oz Amaro Nonino
1/4 oz Luxardo Maraschino

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail glass, and garnish with a lemon twist.
Two Tuesdays ago, I returned to the Community Cocktails book and spied the Zeppelin by Benjamin Perri at 7 Seas Brewing in Tacoma, Washington. The structure of an American whiskey, two amari, and Maraschino reminded me a bit of the Down & Brown. Once prepared, the Zeppelin greeted the senses with lemon, orange, and caramel aromas. Next, malt and a melon-peach note on the sip floated towards a Bourbon, minty, bitter orange, and nutty swallow.
