The Lonesome Hero

Nate Dumas, The Shanty | Brooklyn, NY

More than just a digestif, Becherovka acts as a bridge ingredient in this drink. The herbal notes complement the spicy characteristic of rye whiskey while the ginger and cinnamon notes of the liqueur are bolstered by bright notes of cherry.


Serving: 1

  • 1 1/2 ounces rye whiskey, preferably Ragtime Rye
  • 3/4 ounce Becherovka
  • 1/2 ounce cherry liqueur, preferably Combier
  • 2 dashes Regans' orange bitters

Garnish: lemon twist

  1. Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass over ice and stir until chilled.

  3. Garnish with a lemon twist.
