Water, water, every where,

And all the boards did shrink;

Water, water, every where,

Nor any drop to drink.


In his poem, "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner," published in 1798, Coleridge creates a sense of danger, the supernatural, and serenity, depending on the mood in different parts of the poem.  In quite the same manner, Jermaine’s Ancient Mariner, at Bar Melusine, moves from spicy to smoky to citrusy and refreshing.

If poetry isn’t your bag, when making this cocktail, think of The Simpsons.  Homer, finding himself stranded on a dinghy in the open sea, exclaims:

Water, water everywhere

so let’s all have a drink!

  • 1.5 oz Dolin Blanc
  • .25 Ancho Reyes Liquor
  • .25 Del Miguey Vida Mezcal
  • .25 Orange Juice
  • .25 Lemon Juice


Build in collins glass.  Fill half way with crushed ice and stir/swizzle. Top with crushed ice and straw. Garnish with orange peel. Cheers!
