the frontier

3/4 oz Redemption Rye (Templeton)
3/4 oz Amaro Nonino
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Krogstad Aquavit
1/2 oz Demerara Syrup

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe.
Two Sundays ago, I turned to the Hawthorne bar bible where I spotted the Frontier. This citrus drink featured the pairing of rye whiskey and aquavit that I have enjoyed before in the Carra-Ryed Away, Immigrant Song, and Ask & Embla. In the glass, the Frontier offered up a caraway, lemon, and star anise aroma to the nose. Next, lemon and caramel on the sip traveled to rye, caraway, herbal, and anise flavors on the swallow.
