frank hinton

2 oz Rye Whiskey (Old Overholt 86°)
1/2 oz Punt e Mes
1/2 oz Campari
1/4 oz Raspberry Syrup
1/4 oz Passion Fruit Syrup
1 dash Peychaud's Bitters
1 dash Bittermens Mole Bitters

Stir with ice, strain into an old fashioned glass with ice, and garnish with a blood orange twist (regular orange twist).
Two Tuesdays ago, I was scanning the Kindred Cocktails database when I came across Rafa Garcia Febles' Frank Hinton that he crafted in New York City in 2013. This Boulevardier/1794 riff added in fruity elements from passion fruit and raspberry syrup, and I was just as intrigued about how it would taste as I was to the identity of the namesake (I asked Rafa with no reply -- the best I can tell is that there is a musician and an author by that name). In the glass, the Frank Hinton donated orange and chocolate aromas to the nose. Next, grape, berry, and nectarine notes on the sip transformed into rye, bitter orange, and tropical berry flavors on the swallow.
