continual risk

1 1/2 oz Bar Hill Tom Cat Old Tom Gin
1 oz Cardamaro
1 oz Bittermens Baska Snaps Malört (Jeppson's)
1/4 oz Merlet Crème de Peche (Mathilde)
6 drop Angostura Bitters
3 drop Absinthe (Copper & Kings)

Stir with ice, strain into an old fashioned glass with a large ice cube, and garnish with an orange twist.
For a libation two Thursdays prior, I went back to the collection of online recipe flashcards for the Patterson House in Nashville. There, I selected the embittered gin drink called the Continual Risk that I was able to spot on a Yelp menu photo from October 2022. The combination of malört and peach liqueur reminded me of the Bjorn Supremacy, but this went in a somewhat different direction. Once prepared, the Continual Risk showcased an orange, peach, and herbal bouquet. Next, a grape-driven sip welcomed gin, bitter, herbal, and peach flavors on the swallow with a lingering honey and wormwood finish.
