 Late City Night

Leonardo Todisco, Lacerba, Milano , Italy

Late City Night Leonardo Todisco - Copy

“Based on a concept of ‘an old fashioned cocktail without sugar,’ [this drink is]  balanced and enriched with a combination of liqueurs.  [It’s] a fresh, herbal and slightly spicy old-fashioned.” Leonardo Todisco

75 ml (2.5 oz) Old Overholt straight rye whiskeyLate City Night - Copy

15 ml (.5 oz) Galliano liqueur

10 ml (.33 oz) Strega liqueur

1 bar spoon Dr. Adam Elmegirab’s Spanish bitters

2 dashes The Bitter Truth’s orange bitters

1 dash Angostura bitters

1 lemon twist, as garnish

1 orange twist, as garnish

1 sage leaf, as garnish

Build in an ice-filled double old-fashioned glass, and stir well to mix.  Add the garnishes.

gaz sez:  I love the idea of using liqueurs instead of sugar in an Old-Fashioned, and the Strega and Galliano work well with the rye whiskey here.  I didn’t have Dr. Adam Elmegirab’s Spanish bitters n hand when I tested this so I used Dale DeGroff’s Pimiento bitters as a substitute.  Not because I thought they’d be similar, but because that was the bottle that caught my eye.  Worked well for me!  The formula for this drink is well worth experimentation with other liqueurs, and other bitters.

The Westie

Adapted from a recipe by Fredo Ceraso, Loungerati, New York City.westie

“I developed this cocktail as an ode to the classic ingredients in the ‘old man’ drink— Drambuie and Galliano. Cocktails like the Harvey Wallbanger and the Rusty Nail evolved at a time when notorious tough guys like The Westies gang occupied Hell’s Kitchen bar stools. They drank hard but with flair. The Westie captures this feeling. After all, though a cocktail should be well-balanced and thought out, it never hurts to have a good story behind it. (Read the full story of the drink here.) I have also submitted this drink for the 2012 Loungerati section of the award-winning cocktail menu at the Blythswood Square Hotel, Glasgow.” Fredo Ceraso.

22.5 ml (.75 oz) Redbreast 12 Year Old Pot Still Irish whiskey

22.5 ml (.75 oz) Drambuie

22.5 ml (.75 oz) Liquore Galliano L’Autentico

22.5 ml (.75 oz) fresh lemon juice

3 drops Dutch’s Colonial Cocktail bitters (or Angostura in a pinch)

1 Bada Bing cherry, as garnish

Shake over ice for 15 to 20 seconds and double-strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Add the garnish.

gaz sez:   I’m a big fan of Redbreast so I had to try this one, and I was out of  Dutch’s Colonial Cocktail bitters so I used Angostura, just like Fredo suggested.  Result?  Fabulous.  The addition of Liquore Galliano L’Autentico was a stroke of genius.
