2/3 Rye Whiskey (2 oz Old Overholt)
1/4 Sloe Gin (1/2 oz Atxa Patxaran)
1 dash Cointreau (1 tsp)
1 dash Maraschino (1 tsp Luxardo)
1 dash Picon Bitters (1 tsp Torani Amer)

Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
After I got home from Tales of the Cocktail on Monday, I was in the mood for a nightcap. Therefore, I reached for Pioneers of Mixing at Elite Bars: 1903-1933 and found the Journalist that reminded me of the Mother-In-Law and slightly of the sweet vermouth Brooklyn. Once in a glass, the Journalist shared a dark orange and bready rye aroma. Next, malt, dark berry, and orange notes filled the sip, and the swallow offered rye, bitter orange, and nutty cherry flavors.
