Metamorphosis cocktail

Does anyone have a recipe for this drink that they serve at Eastern Standard here in Boston? I'd like to make one for my friend who loves them. The menu says bitters and lemon juice. How much lemon? What kind of bitters? Would they give the recipe if asked?

    Here you go -- It was on the Imbibe blog a couple of years ago.

    2 oz. Becherovka (find it at Wally's Wine & Spirits and other well-stocked spirits shops)
    1 oz. fresh lemon juice
    1 oz. clover honey syrup (heat equal parts clover honey and water on the stove to create a thin syrup)

    Combine ingredients in ice-filled shaker. Shake, strain into glass and garnish with a twist.

      Thanks, I will confirm that, as made at Eastern Standard, this is truly a delicious drink. Even people I know that aren't that into bitter flavors OR sour flavors end up liking these.

        Had it for the first time today at Eastern Standard. I'm hooked! my new favorite drink. Waitress gave me ingredients but didn't include measurements.
