I give credit here to Anders Erickson and his introduction to the Sentimental Gentleman and the Staggering Gentleman riff of the classic from his bar the Ward Eight Cocktail Bar. While this takes it's inspiration from the Staggering Gentleman, it does sub out the Almond Liqueur for Orgeat, balancing the Benedictine which can be overpowering in a drink.



 1 oz Mr Black Coffee Liqueur
 1 oz Barrel-Proof Bourbon Whiskey(Pinhook Bourbon Heist High Proof)
 0.50 oz Benedictine
 0.50 oz Orgeat
 2 dashes Orange Bitters



Add ingredients to a mixing glass and stir for 45 seconds.


Serve in an old fashioned glass over a big rock.


Garnish with an orange peel after expressing over drink.

    That’s a Staggering Gentleman, as in Stagg Jr. Cool cocktail regardless!
