The Fiscal Agent

by Josh Harris, Founding Partner, The Bon Vivants

This cocktail picks up slightly bitter notes from the Green Chartreuse and cacao tincture. The sweetness of the Luxardo® Maraschino Liqueur blends well with the sweet vermouth and Maker's Mark® Bourbon. This drink is a rocking aperitif.

  • 1-1/4 parts Maker's Mark® Bourbon
  • 1/2 part Green Chartreuse
  • 1/2 part Carpano® Antica Vermouth
  • 1/4 part Luxardo® Maraschino Liqueur
  • 3 dashes cacao tincture*
  • Burnt orange zest, for garnish
  • Orange peel, for garnish

Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass. Stir until well chilled and diluted. Strain into chilled coupe. Burn orange zest on top of the cocktail and discard the peel. Using a potato peeler, peel an orange peel, zest the fresh oil on top as well, then rub around the rim of the glass and drop in.

*Cacao tincture

Pack a mason jar with cacao nib. Fill with Maker's Mark® Bourbon and cap. Let it sit for at least a week, shaking a little every so often. When peak flavor has been achieved, strain through a chinoise packed with cheese cloth and store in an empty bitters bottle or eye dropper.
