The Phantom Regiment
2 oz Belle Meade Bourbon
3/4 oz Carpano Antica
1/2 oz Nux Alpina Black Walnut Liqueur
1/4 oz Ancho Reyes
1 dash Angostura Bitters
Rinse the inside of the chilled cocktail glass with a dash of Absinthe making sure that it coats the inside up to the rim of the glass. Place all other ingredients in a mixing glass and stir briefly. Strain into the Absinthe rinsed cocktail glass and garnish with a Luxardo cherry.
This cocktail is for those with an adventurous palate. The dynamic flavors of the Absinthe, vermouth, and walnut, accompanied by the spicy smoke of the Ancho Reyes, swirl around the high rye Belle Meade Bourbon base creating a complex and layered experience.
