|2||ds||Orange bitters, Regans' orange bitters|
Stir, strain, chilled cocktail glass.
For a less spice driven flavor, use a more traditional Aquavit. Very complex with multiple layers or flavors and aromas.
This recipe lead me to being a finalist for the 2013 Uncle Val's Best Botanical Gin Contest held at the Night Club & Bar Show in Las Vegas. Also just named one of Gaz Regan's 101 Best New Cocktails of 2014.

- Sweet, but the herbal flavors keep it from being too cloying.
