Butchertown Cocktail

Courtesy Jon Santer, co-owner, Prizefighter, Emeryville, California

This muscular cocktail relies on a hit of rich, nutty amontillado to add complexity to rye whiskey.


2 ounces rye whiskey
¾ ounce amontillado Sherry
¼ ounce orange liqueur, like Cointreau
2 dashes orange bitters
1 fat strip of orange peel, for garnish


Combine ingredients (except garnish) over a large chunk of ice in a rocks glass and stir. Twist orange peel over the top of the drink to release oils from the skin. Use the peel to garnish.
