Whiskey takes a back seat to richness, here with Ricard and Dubonnet taking over. Every drink needs its "thing." In this case that thing is lime peel. Im not sure what that's about, but the overall experience is one of those licorice cough drops you got at the druggist and your mom ate all of them, even though you had a cough and she didn't. It all comes together in this Quasi-French experience, and perhaps the experience of people my age who went to druggists for penny candy as children once did.
  • 1 1/2 oz. blended whiskey (Proper Twelve whiskey used)
  • 1 oz. Dubonnet Rouge
  • 1/2 oz. triple sec
  • dash Pernod (Ricard used and totally acceptable as a substitute, maybe even preferable)
  • lime twist
Combine liquid ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Twist lime zest over the glass and drop it in.
