The Street Cocktail

This was a quick experiment to try out a new bottle of Canton Ginger liqueur. It isn't perfect; I didn't manage to get the gingery flavor I had hoped for. It's a bit like a variation of the Boulevardier, though, and was still pretty good. Rye might work as well as the bourbon, especially since I used a rye-heavy bourbon. Fiddling with the ratios, especially the vermouth-to-Canton ratio, might improve it.

The Street Cocktail:
  • 1.5 oz bourbon (I used Bulleit)
  • 1 oz Aperol
  • 1 oz sweet vermouth
  • 3/4 oz Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur

Combine in a mixing glass. Stir with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
