Blessed Italian – new favorite cocktail

The bartenders at Austin’s Olive and June serve a wonderful cocktail called a “Blessed Italian”. Thanks to the Austin American-Statesman, we have the recipe for it:

Blessed Italian Cocktail from Olive & June

  • 1.5 oz. Bowmore Single Malt Scotch Whisky
  • .75 oz. Cardamaro
  • .5 oz honey water
  • .5 oz. lime juice
  • 4 dashes bitters
  • Grated nutmeg garnish

Combine everything (except the nutmeg) into a shaker with ice. Shake to mix, strain into a cold glass with fresh ice. Add grated nutmeg to garnish and enjoy!
