Whiskey Wednesday: The Good Doctor

Ever since Coca Cola first came about, no other dark soda has succeeded in making as good of an impression on our taste buds. Pepsi? Out of the question. Mr. Pibb? Seriously!? Root beer? Okay we may make an exception for that. But recently something interesting happened. One dark soda is making its rounds and developed a sort of cult following, if you will. That’s right, ask any bartender, they can tell you that there may be one soda that can give good ‘ol Coca Cola a run for its money. We’re talking about Dr. Pepper.

And if you haven’t already discovered for yourself, we want to be the first to tell you that the sweet and smooth taste of Dr. Pepper is even more delicious when combined with liquor – brown liquor to be exact. And thus, The Good Doctor was born! A mix of Amaro, rye whiskey, and Dr. Pepper, The Good Doctor is the perfect cure for any hump-day slump. So, treat yourself to one dose of The Good Doctor tonight and you will wake up feeling better than ever tomorrow morning.

1 ½ oz. Amaro

1 ½ oz. Lost Republic Rye Whiskey

6 oz. Dr. Pepper

1 orange slice for garnish

Begin by filling a glass with ice. Then combine the Amaro, rye whiskey, and Dr. Pepper in the glass. Finally, squeeze the orange slice into the mixture, drop the slice into the glass as a garnish, and drink up. Cheers Pioneers!
