The Doctor’s Orders Cocktail

Created by Rohan Massie for Angostura’s Global Cocktail Challenge 2020, the Doctor’s Orders cocktail was inspired during a conversation about simplicity and technique at a friend’s place in Sydney.

The cocktail was designed to have all the things he wants in a rum cocktail; freshness, texture and balance. Using simple flavours creatively paired and classic technique can produce cocktails that tick all the boxes without the need for a centrifuge, a rotavapor or any other fancy bar equipment.
