Manly Deeds Womanly Words

"A wonderful balance of masculine and feminine flavors, and it’s also the Maryland State motto dating back to 1874. This cocktail packs a manly sucker punch that’s sneaky—hidden by all those pretty floral and herbal tones."

¾ ounce Smith and Cross Rum

¾ ounce Buffalo Trace Bourbon

½ ounce lemon juice

½ ounce Amaro Montenegro

½ ounce honey syrup (recipe below)

dash Post Prohibition Pick Me Up Bitters

dash Angostura bitters

2 ounces Green Flash West Coast IPA

 

For the honey syrup:

2 cups water

2 cups honey

1½ teaspoons cloves

1½ teaspoons black peppercorns

1½ tablespoons chamomile flowers

For the cocktail: Add all the ingredients to a shaker tin, except the India pale ale (IPA). Shake with ice and strain into a 10-ounce snifter or tulip glass. Top with the IPA. Garnish with a thyme sprig.

For the honey syrup: Cook the cloves and black peppercorns on medium-low heat in the honey and water for 15 minutes. Add the chamomile and cook for 5 minutes. Strain and let cool. Bottle in a sterilized bottle.
