The Drowned + Saved
- 1 oz. rye whiskey
- 1 oz. Dolin Rouge
- 1 oz. Cynar
- 1 tsp. lemon juice
- orange peel
Add the liquid ingredients to a bar glass with ice and stir for 15-20 seconds. Place a single large ice cube (or sphere) in an old fashioned glass and strain the recently stirred contents into said glass. Peel a strip off an orange and express the juice over the glass. Last but not least, use the oils from the peel to coat the rim of the glass and give it a twist before dropping it in to garnish.
- I'm still experimenting with finding the right amount of lemon juice. Traditionally, the recipe calls for a spoonful, but a couple of times while just squeezing some unscientific amount out of a fresh lemon, I stumbled upon what I felt was the perfect amount to offset the sweetness of the other ingredients in the drink, resulting in peak refreshment value. Feel free to mess around here and adjust to taste. No other substitutions recommended.
- Use a coupe glass without ice to avoid excessive dilution if there's a chance you may be nursing the drink.
I first learned of this refreshing drink on a family vacation to Long Beach, WA. Our waitress at The Pickled Fish recommended it and I've been making it at home ever since.
