Oso del Feugo

Here is a drink that i made up the other evening at TDN. The theme was Allspice Dram-- which i love there were an amazing assortment of drink presented (CREATED) and a jovial sense of convivial exchange.. So if you are on the web on Thursday night, and you are looking for some fun cocktails pop into Thursday Drink Night [TDN]. and say hello (or if you just want to see the drinks, go here. . . -).
So here is the drink i squeezed in:

Oso del fuego

1 3/4 Oz Laphroaig 1/4 Cask (sub: Peaty Scotch)
1 1/4 Oz Allspice Dram
1/2 Oz Fernet Branca
3/4 Oz Bouchant Orange (sub: orange liqueur)

Stir strain into chilled glass
Garnish with flamed orange Peal.

Usually i reserve my Quarter Cask for sipping, but inspiration struck so who am i to argue. Oso del Fuego, the bear of Fire-- that is how it translates-- i am not sure how that name popped into my head, but i like it. The drink is rich and spicey with delicate sweet orange note and smoke.. Pretty tasty. Enjoy!
