Michter’s Détente

Seanan Forbes, Middle Branch, New York, NY

“I like Michter’s, but it was being a bit of a struggle for me at CITC. When this came together, I said, “Michter’s and I have arrived at a détente.” Jerry said, ‘That’s what you should name the drink.’ Of course, I was going to heed Jerry. A drink was named.”

Leaves from 2” stalk of rosemary

2 oz (60 ml) Michter’s US 1 Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey

.5 oz (15 ml) Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur

.5 oz (15 ml) The American Juice Company’s Blueberry Finn

.5 oz (15 ml) fresh lime juice

1 dash Eli Mason Gomme Syrup

1 rosemary sprig, as garnish

Muddle the rosemary leaves in a shaker. Add remaining ingredients and shake without ice. Strain into a cocktail glass or deep coupe and add the garnish.
