Paradise Sour [Cocktail Recipe]

This drink was created by Kevin Beary, beverage director at Three Dots and a Dash in Chicago. “This cocktail has a bright citrus profile that is balanced by the clove, ginger, and baking spice of the falernum, with a lingering heat from the rye and note of oak from the aged rum,” Beary says.
