The Day Tripper

May 11, 2020

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.

Beginning your descent as you fly into SFO, you’ll see a knife edge gash of water cutting into California’s coastline, effectively separating Tomales Point from the rest of Marin County. You are looking at Tomales Bay, a body of water that is the actual San Andreas Fault. It’s part of fog-covered Point Reyes National Seashore and it’s also entirely encompassed by the infamous Red Triangle, home of the largest Great White Sharks in the world. This peninsula would absolutely be the part of California that slices off during an earthquake and also the destination we planned to celebrate 2021’s National Public Lands Day.
