Two Saturdays ago, I was in the mood for a nightcap so I turned to the Death & Co. Cocktail Book. In the Sazerac section was a variation crafted by Phil Ward in 2008 called the Cooper Union that accented the whiskey with floral and smoke notes. The structure seemed to fit my evening's desire, and having a drink named after my father's alma mater did not hurt.
