fistful of dollars

1 1/2 oz Old Grand-Dad Bonded Bourbon
1/4 oz Cointreau
1/4 oz Campari
1 oz Don's Mix (2/3 oz grapefruit juice + 1/3 oz cinnamon syrup)
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
1 dash Bitter Truth Aromatic Bitters (Jerry Thomas Decanter)

Shake with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with an orange twist.
Two Sundays ago, I opened up Death & Co.'s latest book Welcome Home and landed upon the Fistful of Dollars which was Tyson Buhler's 2015 tribute to the 1964 Western movie. Overall, it reminded me of a Bourbon for gin Jasmine made more complex with Don's Mix of grapefruit and cinnamon. In the glass, the Fistful of Dollars proffered an orange, cinnamon, and grapefruit aroma. Next, a citrussy grapefruit and lemon sip flowed into Bourbon, orange, and cinnamon flavors on the swallow.
