Cardamom and Orange Rye Flip

Adapted from a recipe by Adrian Orr, Boudoir, Glasgow, Scotland.

10 cardamom pods

1 orange half

40 ml (1.33 oz) Michter’s Real rye whiskey

15 ml (.5 oz) Grand Marnier

20 ml (.66 oz) fresh lemon juice

15 ml (.5 oz) simple syrup

1 egg

Muddle the cardamom and orange in a mixing glass. Add ice and the remaining ingredients. Shake and double-strain into a chilled champagne coupette.

gaz sez: If you’ve tasted Regans’ Orange Bitters No. 6, you’ll know that I’m very fond of marrying oranges with cardamom, so this drink is a natural fit for this year’s 101 Best New Cocktails. Although Adrian doesn’t call for it, I recommend that you dry shake this to emulsify the egg thoroughly before adding ice to your mixing glass. Everything else about this potion comes together intuitively, and the ingredients indicate a good sense of taste on the part of Adrian Orr. Nicely put together, Adrian.
