3/4 oz Laird's Applejack (Laird's Bonded)
3/4 oz Amaro Nardini
3/4 oz Grenadine
3/4 oz Lime Juice

Shake with ice, strain into a coupe glass, and garnish with an orange twist.
Two Mondays prior, I was perusing a collection of Attaboy-related online recipe flashcards, when I came across the Sparrow that was different from Cook & Brown's Sparrow and Death & Co.'s Little Sparrow. This one was described as Michael MacIlroy's opposite Paper Plane, so it coaxed me in. Here in the glass, the Sparrow flitted to the nose with orange, apple, berry, and herbal aromas. Next, a lime, caramel, and berry sip perched on top of apple, bitter herbal, and pomegrate flavors on the swallow. Instead of a Paper Plane, it was more akin to a embittered Jack Rose or perhaps a Jack Rose crossed with a Pay Day.
