A complex rye cocktail in which Benedictine plays a small but delicious role, the Frisco Sour marries the spiciness of rye to the sweet herbal qualities of Benedictine. But because Benedictine's sweetness can so easily overpower other ingredients, it's held in check here by lemon juice. In this dry, bracing drink, rye takes the forefront.
Note: If the drink is too dry for your taste, increase the Benedictine to 3/4 ounce.
2 ounces rye whiskey
1/2 ounce Bénédictine (see note)
1/2 ounce fresh juice from 1 lemon
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add rye, Benedictine, and lemon juice. Shake until well chilled, about 15 seconds. Strain into cocktail glass and serve.
