Kindred Spirits by | Dec 2014 | Issue #95

Crafted at Roast in Detroit, Mich.

Named for the mischievous character in a poem by Michigan native Theodore Roethke, the Dinky pairs the classic flavors of a rye whiskey flip with cinnamon and Bam Noire from Dexter, Mich.’s Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales for a winter twist.

1 oz Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales Bam Noire (or another dark farmhouse ale, like Mystic’s Will o’ the Wisp or Selkirk Abbey’s Saint Thomas Black Saison)
1 1/2 oz Rittenhouse Rye
1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
1/2 oz cinnamon syrup
1 each egg white
grated nutmeg garnish

Vigorously dry shake all ingredients apart from nutmeg in shaking tin. Carefully open and add ice. Shake vigorously again. Carefully open and double strain into a chilled bucket glass. Grate nutmeg on top.
