This recipe is based upon the bar drink put together by Lally Brennan and Ti Adelaide Martin ( In the Land of Cocktails) with the assistance of Ted Haigh (Dr. Cocktail). Their libation (Whoa Nellie) mixes Jamaican rum and rye whisky with lemon and grapefruit juice with bitters added for extra depth. In this recipe I have swapped out the Jamaican rum and added in more Double Still Rye. In keeping with the playful equestrian theme in the name of the original cocktail, I have chosen to call this version the Barrel Rider.
2 oz Rye Whiskey (J.P. Wiser’s Double Still Rye)
1/2 oz Orange Liqueur (Bols Triple Sec)
1/3 oz Grapefruit Juice
1/3 oz Lemon Juice
2 dashes of Bitters (Fees Cocktail Bitters)
1/6 oz Sugar Syrup
orange Peel Twist
Add the ingredients into a metal shaker with plenty of ice
Shake until the outside of the shaker begins to frost
Strain into a cocktail glass
Garnish with a twist of Grapefruit
