Slowly pour 2 spoons (10ml) Peychaud’s bitters onto a spot in the centre of the drink. After about a minute or so, a 'Thin Pink Line' of bitters develops below the foam.
How to make:
SHAKE all ingredients with ice and strain back into shaker. DRY SHAKE (without ice) and fine strain into chilled glass.
