The Cocktail Spirit with Robert Hess
Weeski Cocktail - Courtesy of David Wondrich
Necessity can often be a wonderful inspiration. David Wondrich created this drink several years ago when he wanted to bring a bottle of pre-mixed Manhattans to a gathering of friends on Halloween. But his liquor cabinet was missing a few critical ingredients. Using what was at hand, he crafted a drink which focused on Jameson and Lillet, and the "Weeski" was born.
2 ounces irish whiskey
1 ounce Lillet Blanc
1/4 oz Cointreau
2 dashes Bitter Truth Orange Bitters
Stir with ice.
Strain into a cocktail glass.
