pretty woman

1 oz Blended Scotch (Cutty Sark Prohibition)
1 oz Bols Genever (Bols Barrel-Aged)
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Amaro Meletti
1/2 oz Passion Fruit Syrup

Shake with ice and strain into a coupe glass.
Two Fridays ago, I found a collection of recipe from Standby in Detroit, and I was lured in by an amaro-passion fruit Sour called Pretty Woman. It was described on the menu as "tropical, smoky, & refreshing," and I was able to find a mention of it in a 2017 blog post. The base spirits of Scotch and Genever were ones that paired elegantly in Backbar's The Accent, so it was a no-brainer to give this one a whirl. In the glass, the Pretty Woman greeted the senses with floral, caramel, and tropical aromas. Next, lemon and passion fruit notes on the sip ventured into malty, smoky, and herbal flavors on the swallow with a passion fruit finish.
