American Trilogy | Cocktail Party

American Trilogy

The American Trilogy was born out of a collaboration between Richard Boccato and Michael McIlroy, then mixologists at NYC’s Little Branch. It’s a showpiece for the craft and restraint of two legendary barmen, and an homage to rye whiskey and applejeck (two quintessentially American spirits).

If you don’t have a brown sugar cube, you can substitute a white cube or a teaspoon of brown sugar.

Ingredients

Instructions

In a short glass, place the sugar cube (or teaspoon of sugar) and saturate with the bitters. Muddle to make a granular paste. Top with the rye and apple brandy, and add ice (preferably one large cube or sphere). Garnish with an orange twist.
