Toosie Rolls have been part of the military since their inception, but there was one battle that this candy was a little more than a treat for tired soldiers. This cocktail by Aisha Sharpe blends rye whiskey, chocolate bitters, and sweet Pedro Ximenez sherry to replicate this sweet treat. It works quite nicely.
Early in his career, Jon Santer developed a simple recipe of bourbon, coffee liqueur, and orange bitters. It was christened The Revolver and continued on his way, pushing the world of cocktails forward one libation at a time. He helped bring back the speakeasy concept, and by and large built a following for his amazing work and the energy he gives to the industry.
Sometimes it is a simple shift that creates a new cocktail. The Gold Rush, which seems like something that should have been around forever, was a recent creation at Milk & Honey in the early 2000's. Substituting simple syrup for honey syrup fully shifts the flavor and mouthfeel of this whiskey sour variant.
