Double Fill-Up (Death & Co. Recipe)

Pomegranate molasses is a store-bought ingredients that I don't have in my neighborhood. I don't really understand what makes it molasses, anyway. I imitate the flavor (I imagine) is in the ingredient listed in the Death & Co. recipe by using a little blackstrap molasses in pomegranate syrup. The rest of this cocktail is very much in keeping with the Rose family of drinks with a good helping of mint muddled into it to give it freshness and spicy rye for that high-test punch.

  • 2 oz. Catoctin Creek 92-proof rye 
  • 3/4 oz. lemon juice
  • 3/4 oz. simple syrup
  • 1 tsp. pomegranate molasses (half pomegranate syrup and blackstrap)
  • 3 mint leaves
  • 1 mint leaf garnish

Shake all ingredients with ice and double strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with the mint sprig.
