About this Cocktail

Blackbird Bar 2014. By Gina Butler
Keeping in line with our very successful barrel aged/oak aged cocktail program this is our latest creation. Try Box New Make Rye is a staple in this program. It's essentially white Rittenhouse 100, so compared to other white whiskey this is as bold and delicious as it gets. Losing no character in the aging process but being slightly tamed by its counterparts.

  • 1.5oz Try Box New make Rye whiskey
  • 1oz White Port
  • .5oz Mandarine Napoleon
  • .5oz Brandy
  • We aged this drink in a used bourbon barrel for two months

Stir ingredients with ice, strain into chilled coupe, garnish with orange oil, discard peel.
