1 oz Oloroso Sherry (Lustau)
1/2 oz Cherry Heering

1/4 oz Cynar
1 bsp Nocino (Russo)
1 dash Bittermens Burlesque Bitters

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a cherry.
Two Thursdays ago, I returned to Amanda Schuster's New York Cocktails book and stumbled across the Thin Veil that I had never made before. This recipe was crafted by bartender Bryan Teoh for his friend's band Tin Veil. Once assembled, the Thin Veil proffered molasses, cherry, and nutty notes to the nose. Next, grape and caramel harmonized on the sip, and the swallow drifted into Bourbon, nutty, and cherry flavors.
