At Jewel of the South, Chris Hannah, a bartender, and co-owner pay homage to the Big Easy. This to-go drink is a tribute to New Orleans music legend Dr. John. Hannah also makes a variation called the Rebennack, which was Dr. John’s last name. That cocktail subs rye for Bourbon and orange Curaçao for amaro.
- 1½ ounces Bourbon
- ¾ ounce amaro, preferably Averna or Ramazotti
- ¼ ounce Strega liqueur
- 2 dashes Peychaud’s bitters
- Orange or lemon peel, for garnish
Optional: Tuck orange or lemon peel into the neck of flask just before drinking to add aromatic essence, if desired. Remove and discard to drink.
