A whiskey distilled from a grain mash that contains at least 51% rye, a grass and member of the wheat tribe 'Triticeae.'
An Italian amaro made with a family secret along with more than 30 herbs from different areas of the world: 28% ABV.
A brewed drink prepared from the grinds of roasted coffee plant seeds. Coffee is a fruit!
This syrup swaps in golden-hued demerara or turbinado sugar as opposed to processed/bleached white sugar. This gives a deeper, almost caramel-like flavor with a funky molasses nose popular in tropical drinks. We always use 1:1 syrup unless otherwise noted in the recipe itself.
A bitters made from Seville oranges, cardamom, caraway seed, coriander and burnt sugar.
A carbonated soft drink in which quinine is dissolved, giving an intensly bitter flavor. Originally, tonic was used to fight malaria as the quinine was shown to be effective. However, modern tonic has much less quinine and is really only used for its bitter flavor; please take your malaria pills (and vaccinate your kids).
A yellow citrus fruit. The peel is often used as a garnish while the juice incorporated into the drink for a tart flavor profile (citric acid).
Combine all, except tonic, in a mixing glass with ice. Stir until chilled, then strain into a highball glass filled with ice. Top off with tonic and garnish with a lemon zest. #stir #ontherocks
