That’s So Meta
1⅓ oz Becherovka
⅔ oz Bärenjäger
⅓ oz Rye
⅛ tsp Citric acid
2 twst Lemon peel
“Dry” stir (without ice) to dissolve citric acid. Stir (with ice this time), strain, rock(s). Express, rim & drop in both peels.
A riff on Eastern Standard’s delicious Metamorphosis. Sour, with notes of cinnamon, clove, ginger and honey. The sourness comes from citric acid rather than the usual lemon juice, which means this is a properly boozy cocktail. And that’s just how we like it.
If you’re in Ontario, you should know that the honeyed luxury that is Bärenjäger has been discontinued at the LCBO. Here's the list of remaining bottles; we’d recommend you pick one up sooner rather than later.
