Let me start by saying there are changes coming to the blog. Lets start with regular posts, which I in particular have faulted on recently. Also, there is a new category that will get periodic updates. Cocktail Hour.
Kelsi has been diligently studying for the bar. I have been studying a different type of bar. There have been a few recent experiments, most of which have turned out well, but I figured I would open with a classic. At least for me. I discovered the Frisco from a New York Times article a few years ago.
It has since been a reliable way to end any day or start any evening. And the recipe is
2 oz. bourbon or rye whiskey
1/2 oz. Benedictine
1/2 oz. lemon juice
It was one of the original cocktails at the turn of the century but never regained popularity after prohibition ended. So here’s to bringing it back. Its light, summery, and perfectly balanced. Did I mention it’s delicious? Enjoy.
