Monongahela-style rye whiskies may be the key to a subtle, balanced Brooklyn Cocktail.
There are many versions of the Creole Cocktail. My favorite looks a lot like a Sazerac: whiskey, curaçao, and bitters, with a fragrant nose of absinthe.
Whiskey, cognac, curacao, and absinthe—the Morning Glory Cocktail, a brown-spirits brunch delight and "hangover cure."
Rye whiskey, sweet vermouth, Benedictine and bitters make up this Manhattan variant's tribute to the Triple Crown: the Preakness Cocktail.
One of the most famous of the whiskey sour variants: rye whiskey, lemon and orange juices, and grenadine—Boston's Ward 8 cocktail.
The Diamondback Cocktail: rye whiskey, apple brandy, and yellow Chartreuse. Simple and herbal, a post-Prohibition version of the Old-Fashioned.
