Loosely based on a classic Daisy-style recipe, this drink's fun name is a nod to the movie "Tombstone" - one of mixologist Ford Willis' all-time favorites. Sweet's Elderberry Shrub adds bright flavor and gorgeous color.
2.5 oz bourbon ( Ford used Henry McKenna Sour Mash / for a non-alcoholic alternative, try Spiritless Kentucky 74 zero-proof bourbon)
1 oz of Cardamaro (try Bitter Note brand for a zero-proof option)
1 oz Sweet’s Elderberry Shrub
1.5 oz lemon juice
.75-1 oz simple syrup
2 dashes angostura bitters
Combine ingredients over ice, shake, and strain into a rocks glass over ice or a chilled cocktail glass. You can garnish with an expressed lemon peel for a lighter/fresher experience, or a maraschino cherry for a dark fruit/sweeter flavor.
