The 19th Century Cocktail

19th century cocktail

Brian Miller’s riff on the 20th Century cocktail uses whiskey instead of gin for a more brooding flavor profile. Try making the drink at home with DIY crème de cacao for a fun weekend project.

1½ oz. bourbon
¾ oz. fresh lemon juice
¾ oz. crème de cacao
¾ oz. Lillet Rouge
Tools: shaker, strainer
Glass: coupe

Shake the ingredients with ice to chill, then strain into a chilled glass.
