Raymond Massey

Raymond Massey sparkling cocktail with rye whiskey, ginger syrup, and sparkling wine

The Raymond Massey is classic Torontonian cocktail, named for the esteemed actor, who passed in 1983. It’s a classy take on a whiskey highball, with ginger syrup and sparkling white wine combining to form something of an upper-crust ginger beer.

Typically, it’s made with real Canadian whiskey, which is sometimes colloquially called “rye” but doesn’t necessarily include rye mash. We tried it with real rye whiskey, too, and found that the peppery spice made a delicious match to the spicy ginger syrup.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake the whiskey and ginger syrup with ice, and strain into an ice-filled tall glass. Top with sparkling wine and garnish with a lemon twist.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
