Weathered Axe

Weathered Axe cocktail with overproof bourbon, white wine aperitif, triple sec, lemon juice, and ginger syrup

The Weathered Axe, from Danny Shapiro at Chicago’s Scofflaw, is a lovely light citrus sour with some intrigue from the white wine apéritif (Cocchi Americano, preferably).

Shapiro’s recipe calls for 100-proof bourbon, but we’ve also tried it with standard 86-proof bourbon and it’s just as lovely.
