Blue Collar Cocktail


"This drink is a delicious mistake which occurred when I accidentally mixed the recipes for a Liberal and a Brooklyn at Milk & Honey in New York back in 2008," says The Everleigh co-owner Michael Madrusan.

You'll need

60 ml rye whiskey 15 ml sweet vermouth 7 ml Amer Picon (see note) 7 ml maraschino syrup (see note) 2 dashes orange bitters To fill: ice cubes To serve: lemon peel

Method

  • 01
  • Add ingredients (except lemon peel) to a chilled mixing glass, stir for at least 40 seconds to combine and thoroughly chill. Taste for balance, strain into a cocktail glass, garnish with a lemon twist and serve.

Note Amer Picon is a bittersweet orange-flavoured French apéritif available from select bottle shops. For maraschino syrup, mix equal parts sugar syrup and maraschino liqueur.
