The Felice Brothers - ‘The Felice Brothers (self-titled) + Brown Fox

Ingredients: 1 1/2 ounces bourbon whiskey, 3/4 ounce benedictine herbal liqueur.

Mixing Instructions:  Stir ingredients over ice in an old-fashioned glass and serve. 

Notes:  If there was ever an album more unexpectedly fulfilling as a complete play-through of The Felice Brothers self-titled album, I’m taking recommendations.  This music was made to spin on vinyl, and to be enjoyed in thorough contemplation of life’s greatest stories.  Beautiful ballads, sing-a-longs, tracks on the threshold of parlor music… with diverse themes of death/murder, love, regret, hope, depression, and violence!  It’s American music at it’s best meant to be enjoyed for the storytelling and musical diversity.  Dust off the album if you haven’t played it lately, or buy it as soon as possible to see what you’ve been missing out on.  Double bonus:  you’ll feel like you’re part of the sing-a-longs if you start with the Brown Fox on the opening track.  Give it a shot!
