the country lawyer

1 1/2 oz Four Roses Bourbon
1/2 oz Zucca Amaro (Sfumato)
1/2 oz Dolin Blanc Vermouth
1/4 oz Benedictine
1 dash Chocolate Bitters (Angostura Cocoa)

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with an orange twist.
Two Mondays ago, I selected Trevor Felch's San Francisco Cocktails book and landed upon the Country Lawyer. This smoky-herbal Bourbon number was crafted by Casey Doolin at Park Tavern in 2011. In the glass, it provided an orange, earthy, and smoke aroma. Next, white wine and roast notes on the sip slid into Bourbon, herbal, and bitter smoke flavors on the swallow.
