Black Jack David

Several cocktails had denuded an orange of all its peel and it was time to squeeze before it went bad. I could’ve made a Bronx or a Ward Eight but kept thinking about the allspice dram from the previous post. Here it is with rye and rum, a beautiful combination.

Black Jack David
  • 1 1/2 rye (Rittenhouse)
  • 1/2 oz Lemon Hart 151
  • 3/4 oz orange juice
  • 3/4 oz lemon juice
  • 1/4 oz cherry brandy (Heering)
  • 1/4 oz allspice dram
Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Rich, spicy and fruity without being heavy or very sweet. Nice with last night’s summer fog.
