VDay Cocktail

This Valentine's, don't drink away your loneliness with Drano. Instead, seek sweet oblivion with a "Drink Alone", a delicious, appropriately bitter cocktail created by NYC master mixologist Junior Merino. It'll wash the pain away -- even if it does little to drain the festering swamp collecting in your shower.

1 1/2oz Basil Hayden's Bourbon
1/2oz Amaro Averna Liqueur
1/2oz Peach Schnapps
1oz Fresh Mandarin Juice
Put ingredients in a shaker (the bourbon, amaro, and schnapps can be had at most liquor stores, the mandarin juice at Whole Foods). Shake and strain into a cocktail or martini glass, garnish with a lemon twist. Cry, but just a little.
