drove all night

1 1/2 oz Cardamaro
1 oz Lustau Brandy (Pierre Ferrand Ambre Cognac)
1/2 oz Dry Vermouth (Noilly Prat)
1/4 oz Tempus Fugit Crème de Cacao
2 dash Scrappy's Orange Bitters
1 dash Scrappy's Cardamom Bitters (The Bitter House Wife)

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail glass, and garnish with a grapefruit twist.
Two Tuesdays ago, I returned to the 2020 Community Cocktails book where I spotted the Drove All Night. This recipe was crafted by Andrea Zeuge at Barnacle and Vito's in Seattle, and I gave it a go since I enjoyed her Long Way Home so much. Here, the Drove All Night shared grapefruit, grape, tropical fruit, and chocolate aromas to the nose. Next, grape and caramel on the sip conjured brandy, chocolate, herbal, orange, and cardamom flavors on the swallow.
