Slow Your Roll
Pamela Wiznitzer, President, United States Bartenders' Guild New York Chapter
When winter hits nobody ever tells you to "fast your roll", partly because it's a silly thing to say, but also because this really is the season for kicking back. "The nuttiness of the Disaronno is perfect this time of year," says Wiznitzer. "Using that as the base, I added the bourbon because of its wheatiness and vanilla tones, honey and orgeat to amplify the Disaronno, and Amaro Montenegro to enhance and round out the cocktail with some caramel and bitterness." The citrus was added to make the drink pop, because while you want your roll to slow, you don't want it to come to a complete stop.
