Episode 68: In High Spirits – The Flying Dutchman

The ingredients of The Flying Dutchman cocktail resemble a cold remedy, so I hope you like citrus! Or have a cold. This drink has orange gin, orange juice, lemon juice for extra Vitamin C, and a couple drops of Angostura bitters for color perhaps? Or digestion? Maybe just for fun? We don’t really know, because this cocktail is short on information about why and how it came to be. This one truly may have been a forgotten cocktail.

We take a quick gander at the unusual ingredient that is orange gin, but the bulk of this episode is spent covering the legend of The Flying Dutchman. So join us as we talk through the Viking origins of the legend, ghost ships, and the influence on art, literature, poetry, and bartending.

  • 2 ozs orange gin
  • 1/4 orange juice
  • 1/4 lemon juice
  • 3 drops Angostura bitters
