new york sour

A variant of the whiskey sour. And a nice way to use up that leftover wine!

2 oz rye whiskey
1 oz lemon juice
1 oz simple syrup

combine in shaker over ice, strain into an old fashioned glass filled with ice.

pour 1/2 oz shiraz over back of spoon to float on top.

evensong

I removed the vodka from the Vesper (because, really, does any drink need vodka?), and added a hint of citrus.

2 oz gin
½ oz lillet
slice of lemon
1-2 dashes orange bitters

Pour the gin and lillet over ice, add the orange bitters and slice of lemon.

brandy sazerac

This of course, is based on the sazerac, substituting the rye whiskey with brandy, making it slightly less spicey.

2 oz brandy
2 drops absinthe
2 dashes peychaud’s bitters
¼ oz simple syrup, or 1 sugar cube

combine in shaker over ice, strain into cocktail glass.
