cassingle revival #2

3/4 oz Bourbon (Evan Williams Bonded)
3/4 oz Drambuie
3/4 oz Cointreau
3/4 oz Lemon Juice

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe.
Two Fridays ago, I was perusing the Kindred Cocktails database after work, and I uncovered the Cassingle Revival #2 created by New York City bartender Rafa Garcia Febles in 2013. The name suggested a Corpse Reviver #2 riff, and here Bourbon and Drambuie were in place of the gin and Lillet Blanc and the dashes of absinthe were left out of the equation. Once prepared, the Cassingle Revival #2 played for the nose a soundtrack of orange, honey, and whiskey aromas. Next, a lemon, orange, and honey sip rewound into Bourbon, honey, and herbal flavors on the swallow with a tart lemon finish.
