Le Fatigue: A Rye Whiskey Cocktail

Rye whiskey cocktail

A bold whiskey sipper to combat palate fatigue.

Rye whiskey plays the role of a moderator/referee in this assertive mix of bitters and maraschino liqueur, adapted from a bartender’s handshake cocktail designed to combat palate fatigue. A higher-proof rye (such as Rittenhouse Bottled in Bond) helps balance the sweetness and weight of the liqueur.


  • 1 1/2 oz. rye whiskey
  • 3/4 oz. Angostura bitters
  • 3/4 oz. maraschino liqueur
  • Tools:barspoon, strainer
  • Glass:Nick & Nora
  • Garnish:grapefruit twist


Stir all of the ingredients with ice, then strain into a chilled glass, and garnish.
