Having eaten too many delicious Bavarian White sausages and bretzels today with my beloved Eva I went for an evenly matching first class digestif afterwards, the Improved Whiskey Cocktail (by Jerry Thomas, The Bar-Tender´s Guide, 1876, found in The PDT Cocktail book).
2 oz. Rye Whiskey, 1/4 oz. Maraschino, 1/4 oz. Simple Syrup, 2 dashes of Bitters (I took Bitter Truth Jerry Thomas Own Decanter Bitters), Absinthe for rinsing the glass, garnish: Lemon Peel
Stir ingredients wirth ice and strain into a chilled, absinthe-rinsed rocks glass.
Add a few ice cubes and garnish with a lemon peel.
