An update to the classic Bees Knees cocktail, the Gold Rush substitutes bourbon for gin. Created in NYC's Milk and Honey Bar in the early 2000's, this cocktail is the perfect balance of sweet and tart, good for all seasons.
Although we don't know for sure the origin of this drink it's said to be traced back to a little cafe in Florence, Italy. The Negroni is essentially a stronger version of the classic Americano.The gin mixed with Campari and vermouth combine for a robust herbal flavor perfect for sipping.
Grab a bottle of rye whiskey and sweet vermouth and rest assured that you can mix up the ideal Manhattan experience. With a status as a cultural icon and dozens of variations to its name, this recipe is true to the original. Some things are just not worth messing with.
A cousin of the Negroni, the Boulevardier is a simple cocktail recipe that produces big flavor. Substituting bourbon in place of gin creates a more sweet drink that is typically drank neat and up in a cocktail glass.
