Just tried this last night

Just tried this last night and really loved it. The light spices of the dry vermouth play off the other ingredients in wonderful ways. I made it with Rittenhouse 100 which seemed to have the perfect heft to set off the other ingredients but also made the drink pretty kick-ass strong. I think this will be in my regular rotation for a while.

A wonderful, overlooked

A wonderful, overlooked drink. When made with an LDI rye (especially Dickel, but also Bulleit) it has unexpected savory dill flavors that complement the sweet and sour beautifully. We do

1 1/2 oz Dickel rye
1/2 oz Dolin dry
1/2 oz lemon juice
1/2 oz homemade grenadine
1 ds Regan's orange.
