22 ml (.75 oz) orgeat

22 ml (.75 oz) fresh orange juiceBases Clearing Double

22 ml (.75 oz)  fresh lime juice

22 ml (.75 oz) pineapple juice

freshly grated nutmeg, as garnish

Shake over ice and strain into a crushed-ice-filled collins glass.  Add the garnish.

*Gingerbread Rooibus-Infused Bulleit Rye

Infuse 1 bottle Bulleit Rye with 1 tablespoon of Rare Tea Cellar’s Gingerbread Dream Rooibus Tea for 3 hours.  Strain and reserve.

gaz sez:  The infused rye is a stroke of genious.  It works very well indeed in this drink, and I’m betting it will work well in Manhattan and Old-Fashioned variations, too.  Nice touch, Sandy
