MxMo LXV: Equal Parts—Arithmetic Leisure

Very warm thanks to Frederic of Cocktail Virgin Slut for both taking over Mixology Monday and for being this month’s host. And most of all, I’d like to thank him for eliminating the need to rack my tipsy brain trying to remember how much was measured for each ingredient in the final version of my drink because Frederic’s theme is equal parts. (Whether I can pour equal parts by the end of the evening is another story.)


Arithmetic Leisure

  • 1 oz Dry Rye Gin
  • 1 oz Punt e Mes
  • 1 oz Campari
  • 1 oz fresh orange juice
Shake with ice and strain into a chilled wine glass. Add fresh ice.

This aperitif cocktail is built around the Dry Rye Gin from St. George Spirits, the fruit notes from the other ingredients balancing the rye, juniper and peppercorns, and the bitter botanicals all coming together as a whole.


  1. Awesome. So many layers of flavor in this drink. The peppery, whiskey-like Dry Rye gin made this more than just a juicy Negroni— kind of Manhattan-ish with the Punt e Mes, but also kind of Old Fashioned-ish with the fresh OJ. I'm wondering what blood orange juice would do to it...? Thanks for the recipe.
