We created this cocktail for Father’s Day in 2023. It’s our unique aquavit riff on the classic Stiletto cocktail, which traditionally employs bourbon as its main spirit. We combine bourbon and aquavit for this one, making it a little less sweet and boozy.
In a shaker with ice combine:
2.25 oz. Batch 22 New American Aquavit
1.25 oz. Fierce & Kind Straight Bourbon
1 tsp. Orgeat (almond syrup)
.5 oz. Fresh lime juice
Brandied cherries for garnish
Shake vigorously and strain into a rocks glass with one large cube.
Garnish with two brandied cherries.
