Basin Street Blues

This cocktail, adapted from Domenica in New Orleans, is pretty low in alcohol, but not at all low in flavor. It reminds us of rich caramel and tangy lemon drops, with an essential smoky addition from a few drops of Scotch. Nardini Amaro is a chocolatey amaro with tons of peppermint flavor.

Note: To make turbinado sugar simple syrup, combine 1 cup water with 1 cup turbinado sugar (such as Sugar in the Raw) in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Cool before using. Simple syrup will keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
