2 1⁄2 oz Rye
1⁄2 oz Applejack, Lairds
1⁄4 oz Cassis
1⁄4 oz Lemon juice
1⁄4 oz Allspice Dram

Shake all ingredients over ice in strainer. Pour into coupe glass. Express and orange peel over top and drop in as a twist.


Berry, citrus and spice.


The drink takes inspiration from wassailing, or the holiday reverie to end winter and bring on a bountiful spring harvest.
