The Devil's Soul cocktail: rye whiskey, smoky mezcal, two amaros, and a dollop of St. Germaine.
Descended from the Boulevardier, the 1795 Cocktail: rye whiskey, Campari, Aperol, Carpano Antica, Punt e Mes, and Xocolatl Mole bitters.
The ephemeral Bourbon Mint Julep: we see it about one day a year—Kentucky Derby Day—and then it's gone. Whiskey, sugar, mint, and ice—lots of ice.
The Libertine: rye whiskey combines with London Dry gin, Benedictine, sweet vermouth and a healthy dose of bitters in this riff on the Old-Fashioned.
The Black Manhattan: bourbon, Averna, and Angostura bitters. Another variant of one of the greatest of the classic cocktails.
Whether you call it Brown Derby or De Rigueur, it's still an excellent whiskey sour: bourbon, grapefruit juice and honey.
Chatham Artillery Punch: whiskey, brandy, rum, and Champagne all bundled up together. An iron fist in a velvet glove.
A variant of the Whiskey Old-Fashioned, with bourbon, bitters, a collection of liqueurs, and a dash of hot pepper—one of Minneapolis's finest inventions.
The Hesitation Cocktail — Whiskey, Swedish Punch, and a touch of lemon. An easy drink with big flavor.
My favorite take on the Old Fashioned — Old Weller Bourbon, Demerara syrup, and Bittercube's Trinity bitters
