Almost Red Lips Rye
This cocktail was inspired by the "Red Lips Rye" cocktail currently featured in the cocktail book at the Savoy American Bar in London. The original cocktail features rye whisky, a raspberry port cordial, Campari and Kummel. Not having the exact measurements and original ingredients, I endeavored to re-create this cocktail, in color, flavor, and sweetness, with ingredients in my home bar. I do believe this comes pretty close to the original, and is pretty damn delicious!
2 oz Roundstone Rye 92 Proof
1 oz Port
⅓ oz Garofalo Blueberry liqueuer, Chambourd, or Cherry Heering
⅓ oz Aquavit
⅓ oz Aperol or Campari

Combine all in a cocktail mixer with ice, stir well, and strain into a chilled coupe or martini glass.
