Whiskey Daisy

whiskey daisyThis riff on a 19th-century classic matches bourbon’s subtle softness to rye’s bright spice.

1 oz. bourbon
1 oz. rye whiskey
¾ oz. fresh lemon juice
½ oz. simple syrup (1:1)
½ oz. orgeat
Tools: shaker, strainer
Glass: coupe

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