Ingredients

  • Filtered water
  • Ice cubes
  • 1 1/2 ounces 100-proof rye, such as Rittenhouse
  • 3/4 ounce vermouth, preferably Carpano Punt e Mes
  • 1/4 ounce maple syrup
  • 8 drops peach bitters, such as Fee Brothers
  • 4 drops Peychaud's bitters
  • 1 orange peel
  • 1 lemon peel

Directions

  1. Clean the inside of a latex balloon. Fill balloon with enough filtered water to fit in a cocktail glass; tie to close. Place balloon in freezer, suspended, so that nothing touches it and it keeps its shape. Freeze until frozen. Remove balloon from ice ball and discard; keep ice ball frozen until ready to use.

  2. Fill a large glass with ice cubes. Add rye, vermouth, maple syrup, and both bitters; stir to combine. Strain into a rocks glass and add ice ball; garnish with orange and lemon peels. Serve.
