Sunset Cocktail: Requiem for an Old Friend



1 1/2 oz Ardbeg Scotch
1/2 oz Fernet-Branca
1/2 oz Dolin Blanc
1/2 oz Dolin Rouge
1 dash Berg and Hauke's Jerry Thomas Bitters

Stir with ice and starin into an Old Fashoned Glass. Lament.

The original called for Zirbenz Stone Pine Liqueur with the option of subbing it with Fenret if it was unavailable. It was also supposed to be built in a glass full of ice instead of stirred but I posted on the way my beleaguered mind resorted to making it. I just needed a drink.

My Wacom Cintiq graphics Tablet died for good today. I'm at a loss as it was the most important piece of design kit I have. I'll look into getting it repaired or a replacement but I don't have the cash. Just about eveything I'm working on is going to have to go on hold for a while. I'm not happy but I can still make a nice drink.
