Bonded Bourbon Cocktail: Victim of Circumstance

Bonded bourbon gives this rich cocktail a little extra oomph.

1½ oz. bottled-in-bond bourbon (Old Granddad recommended)
¾ oz. Becherovka
¾ oz. dry Riesling (Trimbach recommended)
½ oz. banana liqueur (such as Giffard)
12 dashes chocolate bitters
Tools: barspoon, strainer
Glass: Old Fashioned
Garnish: lemon twist

Stir all the ingredients with ice to chill, and strain into a glass holding a single large ice cube. Garnish.
