Boomerang (Swedish Punsch Version)

The Boomerang that I know is a Martini variation with a dash of Angoastura bitters and maraschino liqueur. This is more of a Manhattan variation. There's rye, dry vermouth, and Swedish punsch, which is a rum-based spirit with spices and citrus. (Note: the bottle pictured is actually my own recipe for Swedish punch, not the name on the lable.) The punsch added a sweetness that I was not accustomed to in a dry Manhattan, and it was a welcome change that made this cocktail unusual and more international than the standard New York drink. This is another cocktail recipe that I came across in researching Swedish punch and does not appear in any recipe book I've used.

  • 1 oz. rye (North Fork rye used)
  • 1 oz. dry vermouth (Dolin used)
  • 1 oz. Swedish punshc (homemade used)
  • 1 dash lemon juice
  • 1 dash angostura bitters
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
