About this Cocktail

Based on a drink from Hugo R. Ensslin's 'Recipes for Mixed Drinks,' 1917. Very simple variation, just switching gin with bourbon, downplaying the maraschino in favor of the Benedictine, and adding Peychaud's. Ensslin's drink is called the Honolulu, so I named mine after a little vacation spot in the South to fit the bourbon + Peychaud's.

Shit is delicious.

  • 1 1/4 oz Four Roses bourbon
  • 3/4 oz Luxardo maraschino liquer
  • 1 oz Benedictine
  • 3 dashes Peychaud's bitters

Add all ingredients to mixing glass, add ice and stir. Strain into chilled old fashioned glass containing one large ice cube. Garnish with lemon twist and serve..

    Having one now. This was a great drink when I tasted it in the mixing glass but when I added the lemon twist I was transported to an old timey sweet shop. Cheers
