Brass Rail | Cocktail Party

Brass Rail

Brass Rail cocktail with light rum, Bénédictine, lemon juice, simple syrup, egg white, and orange bitters

The Brass Rail is a creation of mixologist Tony Abou-Ganim, who named it for a bar owned by a Bénédictine-loving cousin of his.

It’s a wonderful showcase for the sweet, herbal, honeyed flavors of Bénédictine, with white rum and lemon juice providing a backbone. Orange bitters are essential; we like to give the drink an extra spritz from an atomizer filled with orange bitters before serving.

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.
