dial 'm'

1 oz Laird's Bonded Apple Brandy
1 oz Bols Genever
1 oz Grapefruit Juice
1/2 oz Maple Syrup
1 tsp Angostura Bitters

Shake with ice, strain into a double old fashioned glass with ice, and garnish with grapefruit oil from a twist.
Two Wednesdays ago, I opened up Death & Co.'s third book, Welcome Home, and came across Al Sotack's 2014 recipe Dial 'M'. The Genever-apple brandy combination reminded me of the Two Fold Operation, the grapefruit-maple duo made me consider the Volcano Bowl, and the teaspoon of Angostura had me intrigued. Here, the Dial 'M' proffered a grapefruit, malty, and apple aroma. Next, grapefruit supplemented by maple's richness on the sip transitioned into a dry swallow with malt, apple, maple, and cinnamon flavors.
