After a busy Saturday night bar shift two weeks ago, I felt the need for a nightcap before I opened the next morning for a brunch shift. Therefore, I reached for Paul Clarke's The Cocktail Chronicles for the answer. In the list of flagged drinks to make, the Howitzer as a whiskey French 75 variation stood out. The recipe was crafted by Neal Bodenheimer of New Orleans' The Cure; Neal described his creation on the Barnotes app as, "From our original cocktail list when we opened Cure. A simple variation of the classic French 75 using Bourbon and peach in place of gin or brandy."
