 RPM Steak

Chicago’s RPM Steak rolled out three G&Ts for its summer menu—an “R,” a “P” and an “M,” appropriately. The M is an especially distinct take on the classic Gin & Tonic—a darker, more lush version of the usually bright and zippy drink.


  • 1 ounce Blaum Bros. Oak Reserve gin
  • 1/2 ounce Fernet-Branca liqueur
  • 1/2 ounce Carpano Antica Formula vermouth
  • 3/4 bottle Fever-Tree Indian tonic water
  • Oil from an expressed orange peel
  • Garnish: 2 dehydrated lemon wheels
  • Garnish: 1 cinnamon stick
  • Garnish: 4 star anise pods


  1. Fill a Burgundy wine glass halfway with cracked ice.

  2. Add the gin, fernet and vermouth, then top with the tonic water.

  3. Garnish with 2 dehydrated (or fresh) lemon wheels, 1 cinnamon stick and 4 star anise.

  4. Express the oil from an orange peel over the top.
