Meet the Green Haired Dog That Inspired a Cocktail
Jack Crawford, bar manager of Jane’s Delicatessen, has created the perfect fall cocktail in honor of Ollie.
Ollie the labradoodle
Jack Crawford, bar manager of Jane’s Delicatessen at 2626 E. 11th St., has put together the perfect fall cocktail in honor of his furry friend, Ollie. Ollie is a 2-year-old black labradoodle with a green mohawk. The drink dedicated to him is just as playful as his unique coif.
The Ollie is an apple brandy-based drink, but when Crawford mixes orange bitters with Averna — a Sicilian liqueur with notes of herbs and citrus rinds — the cocktail mimics a lighter Manhattan. Garnished with a brandied cherry, the Ollie is a spicy-yet-subtle tipple perfect for a chilly day. Order one the next time you’re dining at the Route 66 restaurant.
