About this Cocktail

In gearing up for Loyal Nine's inaugural Yacht Rock Sunday in May 2015, I started tinkering at home with a few ideas. I knew that I wanted to call one of the drinks One Night in Bangkok. I figured that Batavia Arrack was the way to go given the bar's stock, and I was considering a merge of a Floridita and my Sinnerman Swizzle. Unfortunately, this drink never made the list for the bottle that I thought was Allspice Dram on the back bar at work was actually Nux Alpina. Therefore, I renamed this one The Devil Walking Next to Me from a lyric from One Night in Bangkok. While it never made a list, it made the Haus Alpenz site for Batavia Arrack, Salers, and Allspice Dram recipes.

  • 1 1/4 oz Batavia Arrack
  • 1/2 oz Sweet Vermouth
  • 1/2 oz Lime Juice
  • 1/2 oz Gentian Liqueur (Suze, Aveze, Salers)
  • 1/4 oz Allspice Dram

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe. Garnish with a lime wheel.
