ecstacy of gold bourbon cocktail recipe

The Ecstacy of Gold from contributor Brian Prugalidad (@hoyboss instagram) // inspired by the great composer, Ennio Morricone, a Scorpio. “The Ecstasy of Gold,” is one of Mr. Morricone’s most notable scores and draws parallels between his and Averna’s Italian background. Also, the name pays homage to its Gold Rush roots. It is complex yet well-balanced.
