Sounded delicious and I post it here (with his permission) for you to consider or for inspiration.
In my case, while looking at the Suze Liqueur on the shelf, I spied a bottle of Averna which I had been wanting to buy for some time. So I built a cocktail around Averna, a twist on the classic Boulevardier, to enjoy last night.
Carl's GBD (Golden, brown, & delicious)
2oz Stone Barn rye
1/4oz Stone Barn Nocino
1/4oz Suze ( a French aperitif made from gentian root)
1/4oz Zirbenz (an Austrian "Stone Pine liqueur of the Alps")
1/4oz Becherovka (from Czech Republic, an herbal digestive that makes one think of a wintery holiday)
Stir ingredients in a mixing glass with ice and pour into a cocktail glass. (The one pictured is garnished with the Lewis' home-made dehydrated blood orange disc)
1 shot Rye
3/4 shot Averna amaro siciliano
3/4 shot Cocchi Vermouth di Torino
I put it in a glass with 2 ice cubes and swirl it as I walk around the kitchen thinking about what to make for dinner.
