Drink of the Week: Red Hook

Like my little rooster glass? Goodwill is way more fun than Crate and Barrel, isn't it?

Yet another in my pantheon of rye-based cocktails, the Red Hook is a cocktail all bourbon/rye drinkers should try. It does require two ingredients you may not own yet (Punt Y Mes and Maraschino liqueur), but it is worth adding them to your liquor cabinet.

Read more about the Red Hook over at The Cocktail Chronicles. My version and proportions are below.

Red Hook

Stir together in an iced shaker:
  • 2 oz. rye whiskey
  • 1/2 oz. Punt Y Mes
  • 1/4 oz. Maraschino liqueur
Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
