On The Rocks Cocktail of the Day: The Waldorf

Every day, On The Rocks--a favorite whiskey bar of mine and of Women Who Whiskey--publishes a Cocktail of the Day recipe. 

The love child of a Manhattan and a Sazerac (my two favorite drinks!), The Waldorf sounds like a delightful way to unwind after a long day. 

{The Waldorf}
The Waldorf Cocktail was one of the signature drinks of the Waldorf-Astoria Bar at the beginning of the 20th Century.

The Waldorf 
Recipe from On The Rocks

2 oz rye whiskey
3/4 oz sweet vermouth
1/4 oz absinthe or substitute
2 dashes Angostura bitters

Pour the absinthe into a mixing glass and swirl it around to coat the sides. Toss out any excess. 
Add the remaining ingredients and ice. 
Stir well. 
Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Bottoms up!
