Grievous Angel | Cocktail Party

Grievous Angel

Grievous Angel bourbon cocktail

The name is a little emo, yes – but we can forgive the Grievous Angel, because it’s an excellent cocktail with a perfect balance between woody bourbon, fragrant elderflower, and the rich sweetness of high-quality strawberry syrup.

We found this recipe from Laurent Lebac of Chicago’s Big Star bar while sifting through back-issues of PUNCH, an online magazine. It’s definitely worth a look if you’re interested in the craft of drinks!

Lebac calls for a 90-proof bourbon, but it’s not really too different in taste from regular 80-proof.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake everything (except the lemon peel) with ice, and strain into an ice-filled short glass. Express a strip of lemon peel over the drink, then discard the peel. Garnish with a strawberry slice.
