Reviver recipe


  • 45ml Coconut Oil Bulleit Rye Whiskey
  • 15ml cranberry Roger Groult Calvados 3 years
  • 10ml cold brew coffee
  • 10ml REAL Blue Agave Syrup

For the Coconut Rye:
Melt 150g Organic Virgin Coconut Oil and mix with 700ml Bulleit Rye Whiskey. Freeze overnight and strain solids.

For the Cranberry Calvados:
Vacuum seal 200g Dried Cranberries with 700ml Roger Groult Calvados 3 years. Sous Vide and then strain.

Pour all ingredients into a mixing glass, top with ice and stir. Strain into an Old fashioned glass with a big block of ice. Garnish with a Coconut, Cranberry and Yogurt Nut Bar.


From bar manager Ellery Low:

“Served like an Old Fashioned, this has been one of our favourite cocktails at Maker in 2023. The inspiration was the flavours of nut bars and muesli bars. It’s slightly rich and silky, and has real depth of flavour.”
