Deadpan Fix (Death & Co. Recipe)


I'm used to a Fix being in a rocks glass, but anything goes in cocktail naming, and I'm not sure there is anything fixed about the meaning of the word Fix. 

This is a fun way to get the whiskey to go down, which is the real point of a Fix--make it as easy to drink as possible and it will fix you up. Some fun ingredients in this, including Campari and ginger syrup. The Grand Marnier adds sweetness and citrus in a cocktail that already has a lot of both. My substitution is homemade Mandarine Napoleon. This just adds more mandarin orange and spice notes that Grand Marnier doesn't have. 

  • 1 1/2 oz. Catoctin Creek 92-proof rye
  • 1/4 oz. Campari
  • 1/4 oz. Grand Marnier (homemade Mandarine Napoleon used)
  • 3/4 oz. grapefruit juice
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/4 oz. ginger syrup (homemade ginger brandy and simple syrup used)
  • 1 orange twist garnish
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled coupe glass and garnish with the orange twist.
