Sunset Cocktail: Insomnia for Daylight Savings Springing the Fuck Ahead

1 oz. Whistlepig Rye
1 oz. Averna Amaro Siciliano 
1 oz. Butterfly Boston Absinthe
1 bsp Gomme Syrup
2 dashes Scrappy’s Aromatic Bitters

Stir first 4 ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled Old Fashioned glass. Float bitters on top and breathe in the blessing of tranquility.

The last thing I need is a forced loss of sleep on top of my already (un)natural lack of sleep. This is that time of year for the dreadfully unnecessary loss of an hour of sleep for Daylight Savings Time. I came up with this Insomnia Cocktail a little while ago as a variation of a Brain Duster and it is a potent fix for sleeplessness.

Hopefully I'll be sound asleep when the clocks roll ahead and I'll wake up in the morning when nature calls wondering why the Hell I slept in so late. Luckily our schedule at work shifted a little do I don't have to get up at any particular time, though, if all goes at it has been lately, I'm just hoping to actually get sleep.

I only now just realized I switched up the glass from a Coup to an Old Fashioned. Shit, these are the things that matter.
