Rye Manhattan

Rating: 4.5 stars 18
One of the great classic cocktails, this one's made the old fashioned way -- with rye whiskey.

True Manhattan

Rating: 4.5 stars 35
Classic Manhattan cocktail served either straight up or on the rocks.

Chef John's Whiskey Sour

Rating: 5 stars 5
This is the best whiskey sour recipe. I'm excited to share my favorite formula for this incredibly refreshing, super simple, absolutely delicious drink. Day drinking is the best, and if that day happens to be sunny and hot, there's no better cocktail to enjoy than a classic whiskey sour. Garnish with a slice of blood orange and a Luxardo cherry.

John Collins Cocktail

Rating: 4 stars 1
Of the Collins siblings, John's gin-toting brother, Tom, is more famous. With whiskey, John is somewhat similar to a whiskey sour with club soda.

Boulevardier Cocktail

If you like a Negroni and you like whiskey, too, give this one a try. It's a whiskey Negroni. Play with the ratios; I sometimes pull back on the sweet vermouth just slightly. This is also great served on the rocks.

Cocktail a la Louisiane

Rating: 4.5 stars 2
There's a lot going on in this complex rye whiskey cocktail named after an old restaurant in New Orleans.

Blood and Sand Cocktail

Rating: 4 stars 3
This long forgotten Prohibition-era cocktail is named for the 1922 movie starring Rudolph Valentino. It is the movie which, on his death bed, he stated he'd like to be his legacy. Try this drink straight up, and toast one of the most revered actors of silent film.
