Medicine Show

Now the rainman gave me two cures
Then he said, “Jump right in”
The one was Texas medicine
The other was just railroad gin

—Bob Dylan, Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again

My third Zirbenz cocktail and the most interesting so far. The pine combines well with Campari, bringing out its herbal notes. I liked the touch of peat smoke on the last one so I gave this one an Ardbeg rinse too.

Medicine Show
  • 1 1/2 oz gold Barbados rum
  • 1/2 oz Campari
  • 1/4 oz Zirbenz Stone Pine liqueur
  • Ardbeg (rinse)
Coat chilled cocktail glass with a small amount of Ardbeg or other Islay malt. Combine rum, Campari and Zirbenz with ice and shake. Strain into prepared glass.
