Bases Clearing Double
Adapted from a recipe by Sandy Levine, The Oakland, Ferndale, MI
60 ml (2 oz) Gingerbread Rooibus-Infused Bulleit Rye*
22 ml (.75 oz) orgeat
22 ml (.75 oz) fresh orange juice
22 ml (.75 oz) fresh lime juice
22 ml (.75 oz) pineapple juice
freshly grated nutmeg, as garnish
Shake over ice and strain into a crushed-ice-filled collins glass. Add the garnish.
*Gingerbread Rooibus-Infused Bulleit Rye
Infuse 1 bottle Bulleit Rye with 1 tablespoon of Rare Tea Cellar’s Gingerbread Dream Rooibus Tea for 3 hours. Strain and reserve.
gaz sez: The infused rye is a stroke of genious. It works very well indeed in this drink, and I’m betting it will work well in Manhattan and Old-Fashioned variations, too. Nice touch, Sandy
