Bases Clearing Double
Adapted from a recipe by Sandy Levine, The Oakland, Ferndale, MI
60 ml (2 oz) Gingerbread Rooibus-Infused Bulleit Rye*
22 ml (.75 oz) orgeat
22 ml (.75 oz) fresh lime juice
22 ml (.75 oz) pineapple juice
freshly grated nutmeg, as 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
