Blackthorne | Cocktail Party

Blackthorne

Blackthorne cocktail with Irish whiskey, sweet vermouth, aromatic bitters, and absinthe

This classic from The Savoy Cocktail Book, adapted by Gaz Regan in The Joy of Mixology, is essentially an absinthe Manhattan. Go very easy on the absinthe – treat it like bitters and add just a couple drops, or wash the inside of the glass with it instead of adding it to the shaker.

Ingredients

Instructions

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
