sealback

Based on the Seelbach, a classic cocktail from the namesake Louisville bar, discovered nearly simultaneously in Mother Jones and in a book on bitters. My version eliminates the extraneous champagne, which simply waters down the drink.

2 oz bourbon
1 oz Cointreau or triple sec
7 dashes Angostura bitters
7 dashes Peychaud’s bitters

Combine all ingredients in shaker over ice, and strain into cocktail glass. Garnish with an orange twist.

Or, you can try the original Seelbach:

1 oz bourbon
½ oz Cointreau or triple sec
7 dashes Angostura bitters
7 dashes Peychaud’s bitters
Chilled champagne or sparkling wine
