Stinger variant. Quite nice and a bit more depth than a standard Stinger, but pretty mint-dominated. Try shaving down the amount of menthe.

(update 5 minutes later) Improved after more dilution, maybe shake harder?

Take 2

  • 1tsp (⅙oz) crème de menthe
  • ¼oz Gentian amaro
  • 2oz#bourbon#whiskey (Russell’s Reserve)
  • 2 dashes mint bitters

Much nicer. Goes well with the oak, fruit notes of the bourbon. Mint no longer the only taste.
