The Benchley

The Benchley

Here is a fantastic brunch cocktail from DrinkTonight, one of my favorite Instagram accounts based in DC.  They feature fantastic cocktail recipes with various local spirits. Find them on Instagram at www.instagram.com/drinktonight.

Introducing your favorite new brunch cocktail. Another unique, delicious recipe courtesy of our friends over at @12bottlebar, The Benchley is similar to The Algonquin — rye, dry vermouth, and pineapple juice. Add some flavors from Sriracha and you have yourself a drink that is savory, sweet, strong, and everything you want at brunch. I added lemon juice from their recipe for some acidity to balance the pineapple, but if you omit its closer to their recipe.

1½ oz Roundstone Rye
¾ oz dry vermouth
¾ oz Pineapple Sriracha Syrup
Juice of a half lemon

Combine all over ice and strain into a rocks glass with ice. Lemon peel garnish.
