Telepan Local's Nutty Apostle
The Ingredients: Pecan-infused bourbon, Lucano Amaro, St. John Commandaria, aromatic bitters
The pun detector is about to go off the charts, but you really will go nuts for this new ditty being poured at Bill Telepan's TriBeca eatery. Nutty drinks usually skew sweet - think of all the hazelnut and walnut liqueurs out there - but the pecan-infused bourbon offers a savory wallop that combines with the bitters for a result that should appeal to drinkers of Manhattans and Old Fashioneds.There are many layers in this tiny glass - the amaro provides some herbs while the Commandaria, a dessert wine, gives it a sherrylike kick. The mixologist that came up with this one was truly inspired - we guarantee that you've never had anything like it before.
