doctor's orders

1 1/2 oz Buffalo Trace Bourbon (Evan Williams Bonded)
1/2 oz Laird's Applejack (Laird's Bonded)
1/2 oz Giffard Pamplemousse Grapefruit Liqueur (St. Elder)
1/2 oz Cinnamon Syrup
1/4 oz Vanilla Syrup
1/4 oz Allspice Dram (Hamilton's)
1/2 oz Grapefruit Juice
3/4 oz Lime Juice

Shake with ice, strain into an old fashioned glass with a large ice cube, and garnish with freshly grated nutmeg.
Two Fridays ago, a Reddit user was asking on the cocktails forum if anyone knew how to make a recipe called the Doctor's Orders that they just had at the Dead Rabbit. I used my online flashcard wisdom to find the set for the Dead Rabbit's Fall 2023 menu and uncovered the way Jillian Vose's creation is made now (it was made with a different Bourbon for Fall 2022). After posting it, I realized that I had everything I needed to make this later that night, and I was curious what a Bourbon Tiki would be like with both Don's Mix (grapefruit juice and cinnamon syrup) and Don's Spices #2 (allspice dram and vanilla syrup). Once prepared, the Doctor's Orders dictated a nutmeg and apple aroma to the nose. Next, grapefruit and lime on the sip flowed into Bourbon, apple, cinnamon, and allspice flavors on the swallow with a vanilla and grapefruit finish.
