  • Cloudy pink/orange color. I boosted quantities to 1:1:2/3:1/4 oz. Clean and refreshing; might even work as a summery drink on ice. — ★★★

Curated this slightly - changed "the juice of 1/4 orange" to 1/2 oz orange juice, under the assumption that an orange has 2 ounces of juice. Thanks, Zachary.

I used Bulleit 95 rye, Dolin dry vermouth, and subbed raspberry syrup for wild strawberry jam. The dry herbal vermouth, rye spice, and sweetness come together unexpectedly well.
