sure fire

1 oz Amontillado Sherry (Lustau)
1 oz Punt e Mes
1 oz Amaro Nardini

Build in an old fashioned glass, add ice, stir to mix and chill, and garnish with an orange twist.
Two Mondays ago for the cocktail hour, I pulled up the Bartender's Choice app and came upon the Sure Fire by Michael McCollum at Attaboy in Nashville. Its combination of sherry and Amaro Nardini made me recall the Blade of Destiny and the Andorra, so I was game to give this a go. In the glass, the Sure Fire conjured up orange, caramel, and herbal aromas. Next, grape and caramel on the sip gave way to nutty, bitter, and herbal flavors on the swallow.
