accidental hipter

3/4 oz Rittenhouse Rye
3/4 oz Fernet Branca
3/4 oz Luxardo Maraschino
3/4 oz Lemon Juice

Shake with ice, strain into a cocktail glass, and garnish with a lemon twist and cherry.

Two Wednesdays ago, I was skimming through Kindred Cocktails when I spotted the Accidental Hipster that reminded me of a rye whiskey version of the Mr. Clark's Cane. The recipe was crafted by Julia and Chris Tunstall of A Bar Above after having been inspired by a night out at San Francisco's Trick Dog bar. I have noted Maraschino's softening effect on Fernet such as in the Schnitzelberg, and here the duo was paired up in an equal parts format with rye and lemon juice.
The Accidental Hipster administered a lemon, cherry, and menthol nose. Next, lemon, cherry, and caramel on the sip gave forth rye, nutty, minty, and menthol flavors on the swallow.
