bird on a wire

2 oz Buffalo Trace Bourbon (Evan Williams Bonded)
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
3/4 oz Rothman & Winter Pear Liqueur
1/2 oz Cinnamon Syrup
9 drop Fee's Old Fashioned Aromatic Bitters (Fee's Whiskey Barrel-Aged)

Shake with ice, strain into a coupe, and garnish with a coiled lemon twist.
Two Fridays ago after getting home from closing the bar, I reached for The Bartender's Manifesto and selected Robby Hayne's 2011 Bird on a Wire. I actually made a drink called A Drunk in a Midnight Choir inspired (in name only) by Robby's drink recipe that Andrea had spotted online (but somehow we never made). Well it was time to try out this Violet Hour number, and it yielded a lemon, caramel, pear, and cinnamon bouquet. Next, lemon, caramel, and orchard fruit on the sip landed upon Bourbon, pear, and cinnamon flavors on the swallow.
