st. george & the dragon

1 3/4 oz Redbreast 12 Year Irish Whiskey (Redbreast Lustau Finish)
3/4 oz Punt e Mes
1/4 oz Laphroaig 10 Year Scotch
1/4 oz Benedictine
2 dash Absinthe (20 drop St. George)

Stir with ice, strain into a Nick & Nora glass, and garnish with lemon oil from a twist.
Two Thursdays ago, I began flipping through the pages of Death & Co.'s Welcome Home book when I spotted Al Sotack's Bobby Burns riff called St. George & the Dragon that he crafted in 2014. In the glass, the cocktail proffered a lemon and anise bouquet. Next, a grape-driven sip gave way to whiskey and herbal flavors on the swallow with a chocolate, smoke, and anise finish.
