pull up to the bumper

1 1/2 oz Four Roses Bourbon (Old Grand-Dad Bonded)
1/2 oz Luxardo Amaro Abano
1/2 oz Honey Syrup
3/4 oz Lemon Juice

Shake with ice, strain into a rocks glass with fresh ice (coupe without ice), and garnish with a lemon twist.
My search for Amaro Abano recipes led me to the Kindred Cocktails database where I uncovered the Pull Up to the Bumper that bartender Adam Fortuna submitted in 2014 from his time at Artusi in Seattle. The drink reminded me of the Rose Gold, Without a Trace, and Sgarallino that are Gold Rushes flavored by bitter herbal liqueurs. In the glass, the Pull Up to the Bumper showcased a lemon, caramel, cinnamon, and floral aroma. Next, caramel, honey, and lemon notes on the sip flowed into Bourbon, cinnamon, and herbal flavors on the swallow.
