johnny appleseed

1 oz Laird's Applejack
1 oz Cocchi Americano
1 oz Aperol
1 dash (~1/8+ oz) Allspice Dram

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with an orange twist.
Two Mondays ago, Andrea and I had dinner at Trina's Starlite Lounge. For a drink, Andrea requested the Negroni Week cocktail that the bar had posted on their social media. Called Johnny Appleseed, the combination reminded me of an apple version of Charlotte Voisey's Unusual Negroni (equal parts Hendrick's Gin, Lillet, Aperol) with an accent of allspice dram. Here, the Johnny Appleseed came through with an orange, apple, and allspice bouquet. Next, orange and orchard fruit on the sip wandered into apple, orange, and allspice flavors on the swallow.
