Amen Corner

The Amen Corner is bartending consultant Nick Brown’s play on the Paper Plane, with mint in place of lemon and a more bourbon-forward ratio. It’s a pretty little thing, with a wonderful orange-mint-spice flavor to go with its lovely cardinal color.

Aperol is the best fit here, rather than a stronger bitter apéritif like Campari or Gran Classico.

Gently muddle the mint in a shaker. Add the remaining ingredients, along with ice, and shake. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a chilled cocktail glass or coupe. Garnish with a pickful of brandied cherries.
