Ingredient: Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa, Angostura Bitters

Garnish: Lemon twist

Method: Stirred

Glass: Coupe

Words: It’s brisk and crisp at first touch to the lip and nose. Seemingly to be less intense than the classic recipe that calls for Fernet Branca. The aromas midway is more of fun herb candy with a spit of caramel and cinnamon of Angostura Bitters. The liquid then twirls into sleek and subtle feel in the mouth. It Leaves down the throat with a slick and creamy aftertaste. Each sip, the sweetness doesn’t numb but turns to be more calming. And you thought getting drunk on cough medicine couldn’t get more sophisticated.
