The Day Tripper

A twist on your old man's favorite from Slow & Low

In a citrusy twist on a historic elixir, adding a little Vitamin-C to “grandpa’s old cough medicine” gets your brain right for a long day on the river.

Hochstadter’s SLOW & LOW Rock and Rye, traces its roots back to 1884 before cask strength spirits were an aficionados' commodity. The “Rock,” as in Rock candy, soaks in the rye to make it palatable at saloons, and it was then later served up in pharmacies as a cure-all during prohibition.

Best enjoyed with a raft, a reel and a day to kill.

Halflight 375/Firelight 750

  • 6oz/12oz Slow & Low Rock and Rye
  • 3oz/6oz Nectar Agave
  • 1.5oz/3oz Lemon Juice

Combine and shake all of the ingredients. Strain into your High Camp Flask. Serve over ice and garnish with a lemon slice.
