It’s just four days away from my first anniversary, so there’s clearly pressure to come up with amazing things to do to justify my wife’s continued affection for me. Baptiste and Bottle, the beautiful bourbon-centric restaurant located on the 20th floor of the Conrad Chicago, made that easy. They too are celebrating their one-year and have created an anniversary cocktail for the occasion.
The Anniversary cocktail is a play on the Last Word, one of my favorite drinks if for no other reason than it being equal measures of its four ingredients. This iteration will be on the menu through November 19th, so be sure to get in quickly before you run out of thyme.

.75 oz Koval Bourbon
.75 oz Thyme Infused Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
