Belcaro


1 oz
In gaelic, uisce betha, or 'water of life' was used to describe such drinks in the Middle Ages. This malted grain whiskey must be produced on the island of Ireland.
1 oz
An apple brandy from the Normandy region in France using apples from designated orchards, containing at least 20% local varieties, at least 70% bitter or bittersweet varieties, and no more than 15% sharp varieties. Bottled at a minimum 40% AVB.
0.75 oz
A full flavoured red-colored sweet Italian vermouth. Try it in a Manhattan or Negroni. Often considered the best vermouth, along with Carpano Antica. We treat this like sweet vermouth.
1 tsp
A French herbal liqueur, with DOM meaning Deo Optimo Maximo, 'To God, most good, most great.' Made with 27 herbs and spices, many unknown.
1 tsp
A sweet, banana flavored liqueur usually around 17-25% ABV.
2 dash
A class of bitters that a broadly made from aromatic herbs, spices, fruits and botanicals. This includes Peychuad and Angostura bitters. You can make these at home. There are plenty of recipes online for various bitters, a good book source is 'Bitters' by Brad Parsons. The only down side is they generally require hard-ish to source ingredients.
2 dash
A gentian-base aromatic bitters similar to Angostura but with a lighter body, sweeter taste and more floral aroma. A common component of the Sazerac.
1 twist
A yellow citrus fruit. The peel is often used as a garnish while the juice incorporated into the drink for a tart flavor profile (citric acid).

Stir all the ingredients over ice, then strain into a single old-fashioned glass over 1 large ice cube. Express the lemon twist over the drink, then place it in the drink. #stir #ontherocks


“This Vieux Carré variation shows off the affinity between Irish whiskey and apple brandy. I brought the Bénédictine over from the classic spec, and the banana liqueur adds a lovely banana bread flavor.” -Jon Feuersanger
