Review:

With a whopping 15ml of bitters on top of 15ml amaro (Italian for bitter) and a punchy 45ml high proof rye, this cocktail perhaps would have been better named Momentary Lapse of Reason after the Pink Floyd track. However, the rich apricot brandy rounds and mellows to make this cocktail surprisingly approachable, although still spirituous. Perhaps consider using the following measures to reduce the serve, and so booze, by a third:
Rinse - 5ml Red bitter liqueur
30ml (1oz) Rye whiskey
20ml (2/3oz) Apricot brandy
10ml (1/3oz) Amaro Averna
10ml (1/3oz) Angostura bitters
5ml (1/6oz) Straight bottled-in-bond applejack

History:

This riff on a La Louisiane was created in 2011 by Maks Pazuniak at Cure in New Orleans, USA. Maks is also the originator of the bitters-based Angostura Sour
