About this Cocktail

A bit of a warning – this cocktail is a boozy one so proceed with caution. We call it Locke & Keynes for a few reasons:

Stamford’s early nickname “Lock City” was a result of the Yale Lock Manufacturing Company producing cylinder locks in the South End.

My husband is a finance junky and as such, much of our life together revolves around finance and economics and anything related to finance and economics. Zzzz…

John Locke – social contract, natural rights, individual liberty, theory of value, supply and demand, etc.

John Maynard Keynes – one of the founding fathers of modern macroeconomics, fiscal and monetary policy, etc. etc.

Ingredients:
  • 1 ounce Laird’s Applejack
  • 1 ounce Willet Copper Pot Still Reserve (or the bourbon of your choice)
  • 1 ounce Carpano Antica Formula
  • 1 barspoon Fernet Branca
  • Orange peel
Preparation:

Chill a cocktail glass in the freezer. Partially fill a shaker with ice. Add in the applejack, bourbon, vermouth, and Fernet. Stir well, until the mixture is very cold. Strain into the chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a flamed orange peel. Enjoy!
