The Blackthorn is a masterfully conceived yet often overlooked whiskey cocktail that is not for the faint of heart. The directness of the Irish Whiskey beautifully complements the refined flavors of the French Vermouth and Pernod, giving it a mature and balanced taste. Stir for maximum clarity and garnish with the twisted rind of an orange.
|1 1/2 oz Irish Whiskey|
