1 dash Angostura Bitters

Shake with ice and strain into a coupe glass.
Two Tuesdays ago, I ventured into the Hawthorne bar bible and spied the Southern Belle created by bartender Katie Emmerson (now Orkane). The recipe reminded me of the Democrat, so I gave it a go. In the glass, the Southern Belle met the nose with a Bourbon and peach bouquet. Next, lemon and orchard fruit notes on the sip curtsied towards Bourbon, peach, and clove flavors on the swallow.
