Public Enemy #1 Bourbon Cocktail

We recently had a terrific stay at the Bardesonno Hotel in Yountville, California. Though we ostensibly went to Yountville to spend time in Wine Country, we must admit, we also spent quite a bit of time in the Bardesonno Bar hanging out with Jan Russell, their charming and very talented bartender. The artisanal bartending craze shows little sign of abating. Jan is an excellent representative of the movement, spending time in the local farmer’s market thinking about ways to include seasonal bounty and locally made spirits in her bar drinks. She discovered Nocino Walnut Liquor, which originally hails from Italy, but is now being made locally in Napa. She blended the walnut liquor with Bourbon and a hint of Buller Muscat for a truly fantastic Bourbon cocktail. I found Nocino Della Christina online at K & L Wine Merchants. I bought the Buller Muscat and the Jefferson Bourbon from them as well.
