Beyond The Veil(world premiere)
In 1918 to ward off influenza a potent cocktail of spirits was recommended. Since most states were already on their way to being dry, stores of liquor sold out quickly. Throughout Prohibition, it was common for pharmacists to prescribe “tonics” in the form of alcohol.
In a mixing glass combine the following:
2 Dashes of Peychaud’s Bitters
½ oz D.O.M. Benedictine
½ oz Sweet Vermouth
1 oz Rye
1 oz Apple Brandy
Fill mixing glass with ice and stir. Strain into a Nick & Nora glass and garnish with a lemon twist.
We would like to remind our audience that, once open, vermouth is stored in the
refrigerator to extend and preserve its longevity.
