#36 Improved Whiskey Cocktail: Improved on what?

May 1, 2020

This week we’re drinking an improvement on the whiskey cocktail, and trying to figure out what exactly that means. How do you improve on something already so good?!

Improved Whiskey Cocktail Recipe:

1 SUGAR CUBE, 1 TEASPOON GRANULATED SUGAR, OR 1/4 OUNCE SIMPLE SYRUP,

1 BARSPOON MARASCHINO LIQUEUR,

1 DASH ANGOSTURA BITTERS,

1 DASH PEYCHAUD’S BITTERS,

1 DASH ABSINTHE,

2 OUNCES BOURBON OR RYE.

In a rocks glass, muddle sugar cube (or sugar or simple syrup) with maraschino liqueur, both bitters, and absinthe. Add whiskey and stir. Add ice (preferably a large cube) and stir until well chilled. Garnish with a lemon peel.
