This classic cocktail is all about balance. The smoky spirit, bright lemon and sweet syrup each add a different, yet complementary, flavor note to this iconic drink. At Dante we add egg white for added body and creaminess, as well as a spiced liqueur for an extra kick.


    • 1½ ounces bourbon, preferably Baker's 107
    • 1/2 ounce DOM Benedictine
    • 3/4 ounce lemon juice
    • 1/2 ounce vanilla-honey syrup (if you don't have time to infuse your honey, use plain instead)
    • 1 dash Angostura bitters
    • 1 egg white


1. Add all of the ingredients to a cocktail shaker and shake everything to mix well.

2. Then, add a few ice cubes and shake again, giving it several hard shakes. 

3. Strain liquid into a large coupe glass and serve straight up.
