Adapted from a recipe by Daniel Brancusi, Vitae, New York City.
67.5 ml (2.25 oz) Rittenhouse rye whiskey
15 ml (.5 oz) Luxardo maraschino liqueur
10 ml (.33 oz) English Bishop*
1 dash Angostura bitters
1 dash orange bitters
1 large orange twist, as garnish
Stir over ice and strain into a chilled coupe. Add the garnish.
*English Bishop: Stud an orange with about 40 cloves and bake at 205 degrees C (400 degrees F) until golden brown. Quarter the orange and place in a saucepan with 750 ml of port. Simmer for 20 minutes and then add about 200 g (1 cup) of sugar. Cool and bottle.
gaz sez: I’d never made English Bishop before testing this recipe, and I’m here to tell you I’ll be making it again. After trying the cocktail a couple of times, and deciding it’s one of the best new drinks I’ve tasted this year, I added cognac to the remaining Bishop—50:50 ratio—and sipped it for a nightcap when I felt I deserved it. Okay, I sipped it every night till it was all gone . . . Nice one, Daniel!

An Affair to Remember
Adapted from a recipe by Ladislav Piljar, American Bar, Savoy Hotel, London, UK.
“Drink created at the American Bar during one of those amazing romantic nights… Enjoy ” Ladislav Piljar.
20 ml (.66 oz) fresh lemon juice
20 ml (.66 oz) pink grapefruit juice
10 ml (1 teaspoon) caster (AKA superfine) sugar
30 ml (1 oz) G. Miclo poire eau de vie
20 ml (.66 oz) Luxardo maraschino liqueur
1 egg white
2 dashes Peychaud’s bitters, as garnish
1 grapefruit twist, as garnish
Stir the juices and sugar first until well dissolved. Add the remaining ingredients. Dry-shake, then add ice and shake again hard. Fine-strain into a chilled half flute glass. Add the garnishes.
gaz sez: Strange brew, indeed, Laddy! Ladislav Piljar and I go back a few years. He’s one of the myriad fabulous Slovak bartenders who are scattered around some of the best cocktail bars in the world. This drink shows his genius. How many other bartenders would use an eau-de-vie as the base spirit? Very few, methinks, yet everything comes together beautifully in this drink. Well done, Laddy!
