MATT TAYLOR-GROSS

In the early 1800s, "cocktail" connoted a drink mixed with bitters. The recipe for this one, which first appeared in our October 2011 issue, along with Rebecca Barry's article Whiskey Rebellion, comes from Keen's Steakhouse in Manhattan.

Ingredients

  • 3 oz. rye whiskey
  • 1 oz. sweet vermouth
  • 3 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 1 maraschino cherry

Instructions

Mix whiskey, vermouth, and bitters in a shaker with ice; stir to chill. Strain into a martini glass, or a rocks glass with ice; garnish with cherry.
