Start by plopping half a bar spoon of shrimp paste into a shaker.

Add two bar spoons of caramel sauce.

Mix well.

Add two ounces of Booker's, a small-batch bourbon with a high alcohol content, in this case 130 proof.
Alison Green
Add half an ounce of Carpano Antico Formula vermouth.
Alison Green
And half an ounce of Ramazzotti amaro.
Alison Green
Add three dashes of Angostura bitters and two dashes of Fee Brothers lemon bitters (pictured).
Alison Green
Stir well.

Pour just enough Frangelico to cover the bottom of a snifter and swirl to "rinse" the glass. The hazelnut liqueur helps to mask the smell of the shrimp paste—"I don't want people putting their noses in that," said Kim.
Alison Green
Strain the contents of the shaker into the snifter.
