Hazardous ingredients

Giffard Orgeat Syrup is potentially hazardous to those with allergy or intolerance.

Review:

Quinquina and spirituous spice from the whiskey and run balance the rich notes of the raisiny sherry and particularly the nutty orgeat. Dilution also seems key to the success of this combo, hence my preference of serving old-fashioned-style.

History:

Adapted from a cocktail served at Georgia James restaurant in Houston, Texas. The original was served straight-up in a Nick & Nora style glass.

This cocktail was kindly brought to my attention in October 2022 by Frank Rozzelle who was visiting from Louisiana and dined with friends at the steakhouse and described the Atonement as "one of the best cocktails I have ever consumed!" This recipe is my own interpretation rather than an attempt at reproduction.
