nite tripper

2 oz Wild Turkey 101 Rye (Rittenhouse Bonded)
3/4 oz Dolin Dry Vermouth (Noilly Prat)
1/2 oz Cynar
1 tsp Grapefruit Liqueur (St. Elder)
1/2 tsp St. Germain (St. Elder)

Stir with ice, strain into a Nick & Nora glass, and garnish with grapefruit oils from a twist (include peel).
Two Saturdays ago after a large Christmas Day dinner, I looked to Death & Co.'s Welcome Home book for a nightcap. There, I was lured in by the Nite Tripper which was distinct from Chris Hannah' Night Tripper despite both having an American whiskey with amaro style to them. This Nite Tripper was created by Jon Armstrong in 2015 and began with grapefruit, floral, and herbal aromas. Next, grapefruit and white wine notes on the sip fled into rye and caramel-herbal flavors on the swallow with a floral grapefruit finish.
