We asked nightlife and mixology guru Benjamin Newby to mix up some fun for us. The result? Three classic cocktails that every sophisticated gent should not only know—but can shake and stir under the gun.
Five ingredients, one flaming hot orange peel and a minute later? An American single malt that is dressed to impress. “The quality of products you use is the essential feature of all these cocktails,” says Benjamin. “And quality doesn’t mean expensive. Keep it craft, keep it local and keep it real!”
