The Cretan Bull

For the 7th and final day of Craft Spirit week we bring you a simple cocktail featuring two of our favorite craft spirits. The spiciness of this Dancing Goat Limousin Rye pairs effortlessly with this Joy & Sorrow Rakomelo and our Orange bitters add a delightfully bright citrus note. This is essentially a Manhattan, where the vermouth has been replaced with the Rakomelo, which is a grape based spirit with honey and spices. The result is a citrus and baking spice flavor bomb that finishes with citrus and spice on the palate.


2.25 oz Rye
.75 oz Rakomelo
2 dashes Remedy Cocktail Company Orange Bitters

Orange Peel


Stir all ingredients with ice until chilled. Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with an orange peel.
