  1. From Lucy Rose, bartender at Sagra bar & restaurant in Austin, Texas. At Sagra they enjoy pairing Texas spirits with herbs that they grow in their greenhouse.

    2 oz. Railean Reserve XO

    1/2 Amaro Averna (a Sicilian liqueur available in fine liquor stores)

    1/2 fresh lemon juice

    2 dashes of Fee Brothers Orange bitters

    1/4 of one medium sized orange, cubed

    freshly muddled mint leaves

    two cloves

    one orange peel

    medium sized mason jar

    Muddle cubed orange in a mixing glass. Add mint and bruise lightly with muddler. Add spirits, juice and bitters. Add ice, shake gently 4 or 5 times in a cocktail shaker, pour into mason jar without straining. Push two cloves into a thick orange peel, light cloves on fire, then squeeze orange peel through the flame, igniting the orange oils over the drink, drop into drink and stir 2 or 3 times, leaving peel near the top of drink. Garnish with a big sprig of fresh mint and serve without a straw. Dangerously good.
