Dangerous Liasons (Death & Company Recipe)


I just picked up a new bottle of MurLarkey Heritage whiskey from their distillery. I've really missed this craft whiskey on my bar. This batch seems to have been aged in barrels that previously held Cabernet or Merlot because it has a rich red color and the kind of tannin traction you'd expect from a full-bodied wine. I'm looking forward to their reading this post because they might let me know if I'm right about this. 

The only "dangerous" thing about this drink is that it puts a potent whiskey in sweet honey and tart citrus juices for a summery-tasting sour. It goes down all to easily. But I don't lament using my good whiskey--that "old country whiskey" comes through in the finish.

  • 1 1/2 oz. MurLarkey Heritage whiskey
  • 3/4 oz. Dolin blanc vermouth
  • 3/4 oz. grapefruit juice
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. acacia honey syrup
  • 1 grapefruit crescent.

Shake all liquid ingredients with ice and strain into a highball glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish with the grapefruit crescent.
