3/4 oz Lemon Juice
3/4 oz Simple Syrup
1 3/4 oz Averna Amaro
1/4 oz St. Germain
1/4 oz Plantation Overproof 151
1 Dash (or 1 dropper) Bittercube Jamaican #2 Bitters

The Copper Dagger was one of the first cocktails created together by Nick & Ira during the early days of Bittercube’s inception. What started as an experiment to create a cocktail using a lower proof spirit as a base, is now our winter staple. Delicate and suede in color, the cocktail is robust with herbal notes as its backbone and a floral hint heightening every sip.
