    According to Tyler: "'Ringer' refers to an old class of "Bell-ringer" cocktails that received a rinse (typically apricot liqueur). This one is a Negroni with an absinthe rinse. Tastes like a Negroni, but it's a dead ringer for a Sazerac. The Reposado Dry Rye blurs the lines between whiskey and gin and really makes this drink pop!"
