Pre-prohibition cocktails and modern twists on classics


Brainstorm 2 


2oz Irish Whiskey

.5oz Dry Vermouth

.25oz Benedictine

Orange Twist


Add the Irish whiskey, dry vermouth and Benedictine to a chilled mixing glass. Add ice and stir until well chilled. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with the Orange twist.


Airy, light citrus nose. Smooth whiskey flavor up front with whisps of smoke. Mild dryness, honey sweet accents and a quick finish. Refreshing and lighter than you might expect.

Brainstorm 3


Brainstorm is another classic credited to Hugo Ensslin, creator of the Aviation and Chrysanthemum, published among many other classics in his Recipes for Mix Drinks (1916).
