new rider

1 oz Rye Whiskey (Rittenhouse Bonded)
1 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
1/2 oz Ginger Syrup
3 dash Angostura Bitters

Shake with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a sage leaf.
For an after dinner cocktail two Fridays ago, I turned to Carey Jones' Brooklyn Bartender. There, I spotted Christa Manalo's New Rider that she crafted at Rucola. Once prepared, the New Rider offered up a clove, allspice, and sage bouquet to the nose. Next, a lemon-driven sip transitioned into a rye, ginger, and nutty cherry swallow with a ginger and spice finish. Overall, the ginger and Maraschino combination proved to be a quite intriguing duo as it had been in the One for Jimmy.
