Dr. Rieux

Drink: Dr. Rieux

When the ingredients are difficult to pronounce, you know the cocktail is going to be good. Dr. Rieux blends dry Calvados and Coppercraft Distillery rum for a strong drink that's sour but sweet, complete with a sugary rim. A kick of citrus in the aftertaste makes for a complex autumn cocktail that still evokes the faint memory of summer.


  • 1 oz. Coppercraft Distillery rum
  • 1 oz. dry Calvados
  • 3/4 oz. Kronan Swedish Punsch
  • 3/4 oz. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. Pierre Ferrand orange Curacao
  • 1/2 oz. Demerara sugar


  1. Lightly half-rim a chilled coupe glass with lemon and press into the Demerara sugar.
  2. Combine all of the ingredients in a cocktail shaker.
  3. Add ice, shake and strain.
