The Vow of Silence
Makes 1 serving
  • 2 ounces Belle Meade Bourbon
  • ¾ ounce Carpano Antica Formula Vermouth
  • ¼ ounce Bénédictine
  • 2 dashes Peychaud’s Bitters
  • 1 dash Angostura Bitters
  • Garnish: expressed lemon peel*
  1. Place bourbon, vermouth, Bénédictine, and bitters in a mixing glass, and stir briefly with ice. Strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with expressed lemon peel, if desired.
Using a lighter to heat the lemon peel before "expressing" helps yield more essence/juice. Express by rubbing pith side down between thumb and forefinger.
