You, On a Spit

This duck-fat cocktail is on the menu at LBM. Its inspiration? “You can cook ducks on a spit while hunting for food. We wanted [the name] to sound metal and dark,” John says.

  • 1¾ ounces duck-fat-washed OYO bourbon
  • ¼ ounce Pierre Ferrand Dry Curacao
  • ½ ounce pear syrup
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • St. Elizabeth Allspice dram
  • Lemon peel
  • 1 Luxardo maraschino cherry

Rinse an Old Fashioned glass with St. Elizabeth Allspice liquor. Stir other ingredients with ice in a mixing glass. Pour ingredients over a large ice cube in the rinsed glass. Garnish with expressed lemon peel and the maraschino cherry.
