One of my favourite bourbon cocktails, discovered in Austin after noticing the PDT cocktail book while imbibing at Second Bar + Kitchen. That lead to skimming through it at Book People and ultimately leading to a serious cocktail level up.
We substituted Luxardo for Lazzaroni, and Bulleit for Rowan’s Creek. We also tweaked the proportion of amaretto to bourbon closer to a 2 to 1 ratio to make a little sweeter.
A delightful bourbon cocktail, the amaretto gives it sweetness and a flavour reminiscent of marzipan.
