Red Rooster

Simple and elegant with a brilliant ruby hue, the Red Rooster is a rare breed! It is a majority wine cocktail, calling for three ounces of Byrrh, St. Raphiel, or Dubonnet Rouge. The latter is the reddest, and all three are French aperitif wines with sweetness and bitterness added.

If you only get one ounce of whiskey in a recipe, make sure it has character. That's why MurLarkey Heritage whiskey with its corn scent and white wine finish makes for a great aperitif cocktail whiskey.
  • 1 oz. whiskey (MurLarkey Heritage used)
  • 3 oz. red wine aperitif (Dubonnet Rouge used)
  • several dashes lemon juice
  • orange or lemon twist
Combine all liquid ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Twist citrus peel over the drink and drop it in.
