The Phantom Regiment
2 oz Belle Meade Bourbon
3/4 oz Carpano Antica
1/2 oz Nux Alpina Black Walnut Liqueur
1/4 oz Ancho Reyes
1 dash Angostura Bitters

Rinse: Absinthe

Glass: Chilled Cocktail 

Ice: None

Rinse the inside of the chilled cocktail glass with a dash of Absinthe making sure that it coats the inside up to the rim of the glass. Place all other ingredients in a mixing glass and stir briefly. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a Luxardo cherry. 

Mixologist's Notes:
This cocktail is for those with a taste for a brooding cocktail. The dynamic flavors of the Absinthe, vermouth, and walnut, accompanied by the spicy smoke of the Ancho Reyes, swirl around the high rye Bourbon creating a complex and intriguing palate. It's like reading a mystery novel in a dimly lit study on a cool autumn night.
