Dr. Hurley’s Tonic № 006


onic to Enhance Escapism and Reduce the Malaise Brought on by the End of Summer.

  • 4 parts rhubarb juice
  • 2 parts Vodka
  • 1 part Licor 43

In order to pretend summer is not over, shake 4 parts of rhubarb juice, 2 parts of vodka and one part of Licor 43 with ice cubes and strain into a stemmed glass. Take a sip, close your eyes and daydream yourself to your favorite Spanish beach. Repeat as needed.

Note: Dr. Hurley originally prescribed a mixture of vodka, rhubarb juice, and his own tincture which involved citrus, aromatics, and vanilla.  The closest approximation of his recipe we have been able to find in today’s liquor stores is Spain’s golden Licor 43.
