cointreau, rye
Exile in Ryeville presented by Cocktail Detour


The Exile in Ryeville cocktail, found in Brad Thomas Parsons’s book Bitters, is a twist on a classic Sidecar.

The smokey rinse is rather spectacular. Even though it’s just a few drops of the Scotch that actually stays in the cocktail, you can definitely taste it.

And we think whisky blends really well with honey. The Penicillin cocktail is a classic example of that, but also this cocktail proves the point.

Exile in Ryeville



1,5 oz rye
0,5 oz Cointreau
0,25 oz lemon juice
0,5 oz honey syrup
2 dashes Regan’s orange bitters
scotch (to rinse glass with)


Start by running a lemon wedge around the rim of a glass and sprinkle it with demerara sugar. Put in the freezer for a short while, and after that rinse the glass with a smokey scotch. Shake the other ingredients with ice and strain into the prepared glass. Garnish with a thick lemon zest.
