Try this Trou Normand Variation from New York City!
Adapted from a recipe by Flynn Thomas, Trademark Taste & Grind, New York
.75 oz Calvados Boulard
.75 oz Ilegal Mezcal
.5 oz Martini and Rossi Bianco vermouth
.25 oz Benedictine
4 dashes Peychauds bitters
3 dashes Orange Cream Citrate bitters
1 orange twist, as garnish
Stir over ice and strain into a chilled Nick and Nora glass. Add the garnish.
gaz sez: Who would have thunk that Calvados Boulard would cuddle so graciously with mezcal? But she does, indeed, and the Benedictine battles Peychaud’s bitters here until they both relax in harmony. Fab drink, Flynn! Thanks for sending.
