rare hearts

1 oz Pierre Ferrand Ambre Cognac (Du Peyrat Selection)
1 oz Weller Special Reserve Bourbon (Evan Williams Bonded)
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Green Chartreuse
1/2 oz Vanilla Syrup
1 dash Scrappy's Cardamom Bitters (Bitter Housewife)

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe.
Two Thursdays ago, I opened up Death & Co.'s Welcome Home book and landed upon the Rare Hearts as a split spirits Sour. Overall, the combination crafted by bartender Tyson Buhler in 2018 reminded me of the bar's Four in Hand especially with the Chartreuse and vanilla. Once prepared, the Rare Hearts proffered a lemon, vanilla, and herbal bouquet. Next, a lemon-driven sip flowed into a Cognac, Bourbon, and herbal swallow with a vanilla and cardamom finish.
