The Professor Woos The Witch by Kristen Painter (Nocturne Falls #4)

A lesser entry, and the heteronormativity is a bit wearing. I should probably have stuck to spacing this series out more.

1 oz. rye whiskey, 0.5 oz. peaty Scotch, 0.75 oz. Amaro Nonino, 0.5 oz. Cappelletti, 1 dash Angostura bitters, 1 dash orange bitters. Very tasty.
