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.

Toast To 2020
Toast To 2020

Wow, what a year it's been! 2020 will certainly go down in the books as a monumental one for all of us. We're sending it off with a classy cocktail and toasting to a New Year with only hope and happy thoughts ahead of us. 

This drink is also known as the Twentieth Century Cocktail and it's a somewhat forgotten little gem. It's a brilliant cocktail that brings together a few unlikely companions: While you may not think that gin, chocolate, and lemon work well together, this recipe offers a pleasant surprise. The mix of gin and crème de cacao is amazing and the lemon acts as a foil to the sweet liqueur. Adding the elegance of Lillet Blanc brings it all together to create a timeless sour drink.
