New York

Someone in the 70's decided that New Yorkers drank pink drinks. This rye cocktail is supposed to be a whiskey version of a Cosmo. Cranberry juice won't give it the correct color, so use grenadine. For all that cheapness, this is one of my favorite grenadine pink drinks. Applejack Jack Roses are often too tart and the drinks I've done lately have left me feeling a little feminine. Despite it's look, though, the New York made with Catoctin Creek 92-Proof rye is a badass drink.
  • 1 1/2 oz. rye (Catoctin Creek Roundstone Rye used)
  • 1/2 oz. lime juice
  • 1 tsp. sugar syrup
  • several dashes of grenadine
Combine all ingredients except orange peel in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with the orange peel.
