Introducing a thrilling new Book Lush cocktail recipe inspired by Stephen King's The Shining.

The Bad Thing

3 oz bourbon

1 oz fine-quality tart cherry liqueur

¾ oz chile-infused Aperol

MIX: Combine bourbon, cherry liqueur, and Aperol in a cocktail shaker. Serve in rocks glasses filled with chunky ice. Top with a cherry stabbed straight through by mini-sword. (Or axe if you can find one.)

About this pairing:

Baring the same name given to Jack Torrance’s drinking habit by his son Danny, this drink contains the bourbon you’d expect... plus an unexpected set of twin ingredients for a shock you didn’t see coming. Perfect to spice up cold wintry nights.
