Updated to correct an error in a quantity ("1 1/2", not "1 1/12"), plus improve reference. This is a very delicious drink.

Looks very similar to a Rittenhouse Eye-Opener that Zorn used to serve by request at Thatch in Portland, consisting of equal parts Campari, rye (Rittenhouse, naturally), and orange juice.
