Triple Crown (Whiskey Sour Cocktail With Amaro) Recipe

Vicky Wasik

This cocktail, from Jay Zimmerman of ba'sik in Williamsburg, is featured in Brooklyn Bartender by Carey Jones. Made with bourbon, fresh lemon, and citrusy Montenegro Amaro, it's a complex whiskey sour, packed full of flavor thanks to a pour of pamplemousse, a rich grapefruit liqueur. I particularly like this drink with Eagle Rare single-barrel bourbon and Combier's pamplemousse.
