A pre-Prohibition cocktail with a kick, the Frisco turns two ingredients into classic cocktail-lounge glamour. Bénédictine D.O.M., an ancient herbal liqueur originally made by monks and infused with a long, secret formula of aromatics, tempers rye whiskey with just the right amount of sweetness and mystery. The lemon-peel garnish adds a subtle blast of freshness. If you add a squeeze of lemon juice, too, this becomes a Frisco Sour (bourbon, rather than rye, might be the better liquor option in that case, since bourbon registers on the palate as slightly sweeter).

For more, check out our Whiskey Sour, Sazerac, and Vieux Carré.

Instructions

  1. 1Half-fill a cocktail shaker with ice cubes. Add the rye and Bénédictine and shake vigorously until the shaker’s frosted and its contents are well chilled, about 20 seconds.
  2. 2Strain into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass, garnish with a strip of lemon peel, and serve.
