Sunset Cocktail: Corvus Infernum



2 oz Pikesville Rye
1/2 oz Bénédictine
1/4 oz Sevil Absinthe
1 (light) bsp Campari
1 ds Elixir de la Grande-Chartreuse

Stir everything with ice and strain into a chilled Old Fashioned glass. Garnish with a flamed Orange peel.

This is sort of based on the Dante’s Requiem. I was going to name it after something faust but after taking the pic I decided to name it after my potential new brand after Mindless Heron amy or may not go away.

My initial version used a full 1/4 oz of campari and 2 dashes of Elixir de la Grande-Chartreuse which i feel really didn't compliment each other well. Cutting them both back really did work much better though the mix could still use some tweaking. The sensuous Sevil Absinthe was a good choice but the Pikesville Rye may have been a bit overbearing. I may suggest stepping down just a little to a Rittenhouse.
