bold manhattan

I had this one in a surprising retro bar. The bartender used Jim Beam Devil’s Cut, but any quality bourbon suffices. It’s a very uncomplicated yet delicious drink. 2 oz bourbon ¾ oz agave syrup 3 dashes chocolate bitters (or more to taste) combine in a cocktail shaker over ice.

whiskey sidecar

The Sidecar is one of the best cocktails ever conceived. This version replaces the brandy with whiskey. 2 oz whiskey 1 oz triple sec 1 oz lemon juice combine in shaker over ice, strain into cocktail glass. {bourbon is preferred, but scotch is a nice variant.}
