Last Man Standing

Posted on: Dec. 15, 2017 | | By: TOTC Staff

After visiting Wild Turkey’s distillery last fall, Lana Gailani of Denver, Colorado was inspired to create this cocktail.

“This cocktail is in honor of Jimmy Russell’s long tenure as a distiller. It’s also a little bit unconventional, as it includes citrus in a stirred cocktail. It’s dark, richly spiced, with a bitter herbaceous edge, and just a tiny lift from the lemon.”

  • 1 oz Wild Turkey 101 Rye
  • 1 oz Luxardo Amaro Abano
  • 0.25 oz Angostura bitters
  • 1 Tsp demerara syrup (2:1)
  • 1 Tsp lemon juice
  • 4-6 mint leaves

Directions: Add all ingredients to a stirring vessel. Stir, strain, and serve on large rock with mint sprig garnish.
