Tip Your Bartender: Law Bird, Columbus

Owner Annie Williams Pierce makes the Rambler Highball, a refreshing upgrade on the Scotch and soda.

Tip Your Bartender is a social media initiative from PUNCH connecting our readers with bar teams across the country via Instagram. We’re asking select bartenders to share their drinks (albeit virtually) and encourage the PUNCH audience to “tip” during the economically uncertain times ahead. 

Between March 30th and May 29th, for every dollar tipped to bar teams, the Bacardi family of brands has generously committed to matching it with an equal gift to our charitable partner, Restaurant Workers’ Community Foundation.

Rambler Highball

Annie Williams Pierce, Law Bird | Columbus, OH

According to Annie Williams Pierce, the Rambler Highball “feels like taking a brisk walk through an orchard on a spring afternoon.” The combination of Scotch, plum wine, fino sherry and soda water makes for a crisp and refreshing aperitif. If you don’t have plum wine handy, Williams Pierce suggests muddling a few grapes in sake with a pinch of sugar or simply substituting a medium-acid, slightly floral wine.

1 ounce Dewars 12 Years Old
1 ounce plum wine
¾ ounce fino sherry
Soda water

Garnish: long lemon twist

Add all ingredients except the soda water to the glass. Add ice and stir to chill. Top with soda water and garnish with a lemon twist.

Order ingredients for this cocktail for delivery via Drizly.
