Recipe: The American Trilogy Cocktail


Ingredients

  • 1 oz. Rye Whiskey
  • 1 oz. Apple Brandy
  • 1 brown sugar cube
  • 4 dashes Orange Bitters
  • Orange peel for garnish

Takes . Serves One.

Last night, I was introduced to this lovely cocktail by a talented bartender at a speakeasy in Long Beach. It was conceived in New York's Little Branch bar in 2007, and is a riff on the classic Old Fashioned cocktail.

Start by dropping four dashes of orange bitters on top of the brown sugar cube, and muddle with orange peel. Then, add one ounce each of Rye Whiskey and Apple Brandy, stir with ice and serve with an orange peel garnish.
