eleventh hour

1 oz Linie Aquavit
1 oz Reposado Tequila (Cimarron)
1/4 oz Mezcal (Peloton de la Muerte)
1/2 oz Yellow Chartreuse
3/4 oz Lime Juice
1 bsp Cane Syrup (JM Sirup de Canne)

Shake with ice and strain into a Sour glass (coupe).
Two Thursdays, I was still craving aquavit recipes, so I searched the Kindred Cocktails database and found the Eleventh Hour via Star Chefs. The recipe was created by Franky Marshall at the Clover Club in 2011, and I was curious to see how aquavit worked with agave spirits. Once prepared, the Eleventh Hour ticked away with vegetal, caraway, and herbal aromas. Next, the lime-driven sip flowed into caraway, vegetal, and herbal flavors on the swallow with a smoky finish.
