This original recipe created by Broadmoor Lead Bartender Dennis Schuler is inspired by all the grand cocktails served at the resort from 100 years ago (2018 is the resort's 100th anniversary — these walls have lots of drinking stories to tell, Prohibition-era included.) Whiskey and a healing bit of honey makes this cocktail a sure bet for thriving this holiday season.
- 1 1/2 oz Old Overholt Rye Whiskey
- 3/4 oz lemon juice
- 1/2 oz honey simple syrup (equal parts honey and hot water shaken or stirred until dissolved, then chilled)
- 1/4 oz Benedictine
- 1 dash angostura bitters
Combine all ingredients with ice and shake. Strain into a martini glass, garnish with lemon twist.
