Thanks to magical mixologists and passionate restaurateurs, whiskey has not only flourished outside of its traditional setting, it’s become a reason to visits some of my favourite New York spots. From bold neats in dark speakeasies to inspired feats of fancy in reimagined lounges in Grand Central, there are hundreds of ways to enjoy whiskey in New York.
I can’t tell you what my favorite whiskey or whiskey cocktail is, I like to match the mood and location, but I can tell you what I’m really in to at the moment.
I give you the Vieux Carré.
1 ounce rye
1 ounce cognac VSOP
3/4 ounce Carpano Antica Formula Vermouth (or sweet vermouth)
1/4 ounce Benedictine
1 dash Angostura bitters
1 dash Peychaud’s bitters
Lemon twist to garnish
