Rites of Spring

Rites of Spring cocktail with aquavit, white vermouth, peal liqueur, oleo saccharum, and bitters

Rites of Spring is an unusually complex and beautiful cocktail from Rogan Howitt, beverage director at Good Spirits Co. in Missouri. True to its name, it doesn’t exactly taste like spring, but rather more like the promise of an end to winter. It’s warm, lightly-spiced, and has a mysterious herbaceous note from the aquavit.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake everything (except the bitters) with ice. Strain into a tall ice-filled glass and top with the bitters. Express a lemon peel over the drink, then use it as a garnish (along with a floated star anise pod, if you have one).
