Chip Off The Old Block

Carter Wilsford, Analogue, New York, NY

1.5 oz Calvados Boulard VSOP

.5 oz Baker’s Bourbon

.5 oz Luxardo Apricot Liqueur

.5 oz Cynar

.5 oz fresh lemon juice

Build all ingredients in a shaker. Add ice, shake hard. Double strain over fresh ice in an old-fashioned glass.

Garnish with a slice of dehydrated apple and a mint sprig.

Consume while contemplating your relationship with your father.

Trou Normand Service Idea from gaz: Divide the contents of the shaker between two small wine glasses, and invite a friend to join you for Trou Normand Shooters!

gaz sez: Once again we’re seeing a gorgeous balancing act here wherein the bourbon dries out the calvados a little, the Cynar and the apricot liqueur dance a mean Tango, and the lemon juice adds just enough sour notes to make you sit up and take notice. Strong contender here.
