This cocktail from Roberta’s cookbook goes down almost a little too easy. We served it up at Cookbook Club.
2 whole cloves
2 lemon quarters
2 ounces Booker’s bourbon
1 ounce Vergano Americano*
½ ounce Grand Marnier
Big ice cubes
*This is a fortified wine from northern Italy that’s worth seeking out. It’s like a spicy, bittersweet sweet vermouth.
1. In a cocktail shaker, muddle the cloves and lemon quarters. Add the bourbon, Vergano Americano, Grand Marnier, a dash of orange bitters, and 4 big ice cubes. Close the shaker and give it a vigorous eight-count shake.
2. Rinse a rocks glass with orange bitters and fill it with 3 big ice cubes.
3. Strain the drink into the glass and serve.
