shade thrower

2 oz Bourbon (Evan Williams Bonded)
1/2 oz Averna
1/2 oz Sweet Vermouth (Cocchi)
1/4 oz Aperol
2 dash Angostura Bitters

Stir with ice, strain into an old fashioned glass with a large ice cube, and garnish with an orange twist.
Two Tuesdays ago, I received the January/February 2023 issue of Imbibe Magazine in the mail that contained the Shade Thrower by Freddy Schwenk at Geist in Nashville. The combination reminded me of an Aperol-tinged Rhythm & Soul as well as a Finishing School with Aperol instead of Campari. Once prepared, the Shade Thrower gave forth an orange, Bourbon, and caramel aroma. Next, grape and caramel notes mingled on the sip, and that was followed by Bourbon, orange, and herbal flavors on the swallow.
