Chaff Remover

Last week's TDN theme was Wheat Whiskey, so I came up with a couple drinks to contribute, my first submission being the Last Straw.  This was my second drink, also a variation of a classic.  This time I opted to riff on the Corpse Reviver #2, partially because I had a fun variation of the name, but in no small part due to my wanting to make use of my newly acquired Bonal, a slightly bitter but delicious aromatized apéritif wine.  It's delicious on it's own on the rocks with a twist, but I thought it might be fun mixed as well.
Chaff Remover
  • ¾ oz Bernheim Wheat Whiskey
  • ¾ oz Bonal Gentiane-Quina
  • ¾ oz Gran Gala (or Cointreau)
  • ¾ oz lemon
  • small dash absinthe
Shake and strain; lemon twist to garnish (fashioned into wheat stalk of course)
This drink what right up my alley and I intend to add him into the starting lineup.  Like the Corpse Reviver, it's a bit tart and a bit sweet from the lemon triple sec, but this version has and added richness and bitterness from the Whiskey and Quinquina, respectively.  Yum.

Again, this is a variation on the Corpse Reviver #2, which I covered when I made a previous variation (the Xibalba Savior), but for reference, here's the original recipe:
Corpse Reviver #2
  • ¾ oz gin
  • ¾ oz Lillet blanc
  • ¾ oz Cointreau
  • ¾ oz lemon
  • dash absinthe
Shake, strain, lemon twist garnish
