Between The Great Gatsby and Downton Abbey, it seems like a good time to do a 1920s-style cocktail round-up. Happy Friday!
Moonshine Cocktail. A classic from the 1920s with gin, dry vermouth, maraschino liqueur, and just a drop of absinthe.
How To Make A Sazerac. Another classic, the Sazerac is mostly rye whiskey, but the other components–the sugar cube, the bitters, the lemon peel–are important into making this balanced, delicately textured drink.
Black Walnut Manhattan. The Manhattan with nocino, an Italian liqueur made from green walnuts.
The Pearaschino. Okay, I made this cocktail up, but with bourbon, ginger ale, and maraschino liqueur, it has a 1920s flare.
Green Tea and Ginger Cocktail. This one with green tea, ginger liqueur, and gin also has an old-timey cocktail feel to it.
