The Pledge Cocktail Recipe
Created by Death to Sour Mix: This is the drink that made me give a shit about Rye.
Serve in a Rocks Glass
1/2 oz Averna Amaro
1/2 oz YELLOW chartreuse
1 1/2 oz Bulleit Rye [Why Bulleit? Because its delicious! But I hear good things about Rittenhouse]
2 dashes of Angostura
Garnish: Lemon Peel
How to Make
Since it’s all liquor here, stir it for a bit.
Take a lemon peel, squeeze some of the oils onto the cocktail and dip it. Bam. You just made a garnish.
This drink reminds me a bit of cinnamon gum. Like one of those big red gumballs (fireballs?) that get real hot in your mouth. Yeah. Like that. But with a lot of booze.
The green stuff is much too strong for my taste but its yellow little brother seems to work just fine here. As for the Averna, it’ll give it a nice soft caramel note, which you *could* swap out for some Benedictine [per se] and it will give you a great result, if slightly different.
