“In the 1960s, the term Frisco took on a new, unfortunate meaning. If you ordered a “Frisco,” you’d probably find yourself getting a mixture of heroin, cocaine, and LSD, not a fine cocktail of rye and Benedictine.” Cocktails DC writes.
Well, as you can imagine, I am much more interested in the “rye and Benedictine thing”!
And here is the Frisco Sour (the recipe is from Jason Kosmas & Dushan Zaric´s book Speakeasy).
2 ounces Sazerac Rye Whiskey, 1 ounce Benedictine, 3/4 ounce Lemon Juice, 1/2 ounce Lime juice,
1 splash Simple Syrup, 1 dash Bitter Truth Old Time Aromatic Bitters (optional, my choice),
garnish: 1 Lemon Wheel, 1 lime Wheel, 1 Brandied Cherry
Shake ingredients with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with the lemon, lime, and cherry.
The Frisco Sour is a strong well balanced mixture of sour, aromatics, spice and sweetness from the Rye and Bénédictine.
