Leap of Faith

Makes 1 cocktail

Note: This cocktail was inspired by "Saving Mr. Banks." The pimento bitters are available at www.kingcocktail.com. You may use a rich simple syrup -- 2 parts sugar to 1 part water, boiled and cooled -- instead of the gum syrup.

1 1/2 ounces strong rye whiskey

3/4 ounce Cocchi Americano Rosa

1/2 ounce PUR Spiced Blood Orange Liqueur

1/2 ounce Small Hand Foods Gum Syrup (or rich simple syrup)

1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice

3 dashes pimento bitters

Combine all the ingredients in a shaker, add ice and shake. Strain over fresh ice. Garnish with a thin blood orange slice.
