african flower

2 oz Bourbon (Evan Williams Bonded>
3/8 oz Amaro Ciociaro
3/8 oz Crème de Cacao (Bols)
2 dash Orange Bitters (Angostura Orange)

Build in an old fashioned glass, add ice, stir to mix and chill, and garnish with an orange twist.
Two Thursdays ago, I was reminded that I needed to make the African Flower after having enjoyed a drink inspired by it, namely the Maravilla, two days prior. Therefore, I sought out the recipe for this creation by Becky McFalls at Little Branch circa 2008 in the Bartender's Choice app. Once prepared, it proffered an orange and caramel aroma to the nose. Next, caramel on the sip blossomed into Bourbon, bitter, chocolate, and orange flavors on the swallow.
