And To All A Good Night

Bourbon and tequila – a rather unusual combination, but one that works wonderfully, as this drink shows.

40 ml 1776 James E. Pepper bourbon
20 ml Arette Añejo tequila
20 ml Cherry Heering
2 dashes Scrappy’s orange bitters
1 dash Angostura bitters

Preparation: Stirred. Optionally sprinkle with an orange zest.

The drink was created by Tim Stookey from “The Presidio Social Club” in San Francisco. He reports: „In creating this cocktail, I wanted to use Cherry Heering since it seem Christmassy with its strong fruit and musty flavors. Then I had to lighten it and start adding spice. I like the spiciness of reposado tequila, but I still needed more, so I added Regans’ orange bitters. A dash of Angostura, and it was ready.[1]

Unfortunately, we could not find out more about this drink.

Hi, I'm Armin and in my spare time I want to promote bar culture as a blogger, freelance journalist and Bildungstrinker (you want to know what the latter is? Then check out "About us"). My focus is on researching the history of mixed drinks. If I have ever left out a source you know of, and you think it should be considered, I look forward to hearing about it from you to learn something new. English is not my first language, but I hope that the translated texts are easy to understand. If there is any incomprehensibility, please let me know so that I can improve it.
