When you have worked a long day and need a tasty drink to relieve all of your stress, look no further than to make a simple and delectable drink all by yourself to make the day a better one. A ‘Frisco Sour’ is citrusy and lovely. It’s made with 2 oz. rye whiskey, ½ oz. Benedictine, and ½ oz. fresh lemon. To make it, fill a cocktail shaker with ice, add the rye, Benedictine, and lemon juice. Shake until chilled, and then strain into a cocktail glass. If the drink is too dry, add a bit more Benedictine. A ‘Boulevardier’ is sweet and mature. It’s made with 1 oz. bourbon, 1 oz. Campari, 1 oz. sweet vermouth, and an orange twist and cherry for a garnish. To make it, pour ingredients into a mixing glass with cracked ice, stir well for 25 seconds, strain into a chilled glass, and then garnish it. This drink is not only charming, but very sophisticated for a mature palate.
If you’re a man about town, then you will love to have a drink named just that. ‘Man About Town’ is bittersweet with a punch of rye spice throughout. It’s made with 2 oz. rye, 1 oz. Cynar, 1 oz. sweet vermouth, and a brandied cherry. To make it, fill a cocktail shaker with ice, add the rye, Cynar, and sweet vermouth, stir until cold (20 seconds), strain into a martini glass, and then garnish with a brandied cherry. A ‘Manhattan’ is a drink that is ordered a lot in bars; it’s old-school and tasty. It’s made with 4 oz. rye whiskey, 2 oz. sweet vermouth, 4 dashes Angostura bitters, and 2 Maraschino cherries for garnish. To make it, pour the whiskey, sweet vermouth, and bitters into a mixing glass with ice, and then stir until the outside of the shaker is very cold. Place a Maraschino cherry into each glass, and then strain the cocktail evenly into each glass. This drink is great for a romantic evening with a loved one.
