This warming cocktail makes a great digestif. To balance the spiciness, try using a sweeter bourbon, such as Maker’s Mark.
1 1/2 oz. bourbon
3/4 oz. reposado tequila
3/4 oz. Cherry Heering
2 dashes Regans’ orange bitters
1 dash Angostura bitters
Tools: mixing glass, barspoon, strainer
Garnish: orange twist (optional)
Combine ingredients in a mixing glass with ice and stir to chill. Strain into a glass and garnish. Makes 2 servings.
