“The One Way Ticket is our riff on Sam Ross’s Paper Plane cocktail. We added fresh, local egg white to change the mouth-feel and give it a velvety texture. We also added Maui vanilla bean for an extra layer of complexity and to soften the flavors. Cheers!” ~Tara Fontaine, Taverna beverage director

One Way Ticket

  • 1 1/2 oz. Buffalo Trace Bourbon
  • 1/2 oz. Aperol
  • 1 oz. Meyer lemon
  • 3/4 oz. vanilla syrup
  • 1 egg white

Shake all ingredients with ice, strain out ice and shake again with no ice. Strain into an egg coupe, garnish with Peychaud’s Bitters dropped onto egg white foam.

Vanilla Syrup: Split one whole vanilla bean, pour a cup of boiling water over, add one c. sugar. Let rest 12 hours and strain through cheesecloth.
