1oz Allspice Dram
1oz Creme de Violette
1 dash Angostura bitters
1 dash Bittermens Burlesque bitters
Flamed Orange Twist
Peat Monster scotch rinse
Add rye, allspice dram, creme de violette and bitters to a mixing glass. Add ice and stir. Rise a chilled double Old Fashioned glass with Peat Monster. Strain into the glass over a large cube and garnish with a flamed orange twist.
This one is a little off the beaten path yet somehow more approachable than expected. The Violette seems to be out of place, yet somehow lays a base on which the other flavors of rye, allspice and smokey citrus float. The sweet from the violette also lightens up the dry spice and bitterness of the other ingredients. Overall a complex, well balanced drink that makes winter a little more bearable.
