Breslin Cocktail

20130421-134938.jpg

Nick and I had brunch with some of his colleagues today at the Breslin. This has become one of our favorites brunch spots in recent months. The food is solid and the drink list is different (in the best way possible). Today, I opted for the “This is Happening”- a rye whiskey based drink.

Rye is a whiskey made with at least 51% rye instead of the traditional malted barley. It is very similar to traditional whiskey but has more of a spicy and fruity flavor. This cocktail was made with rye, Benedictine (a medicinal aromatic herbal beverage), Oloroso Sherry (oloroso means “scented” in Spanish), and aromatic bitters- very Manhattan/Old Fashinoed-esque.
