Vintage Cocktails #63: The Liberal

I’m not sure exactly where this next cocktail received its name from, but it is delicious none the less. Coming into print in the very early 1900′s, this is a great variation on a Manhattan, packing in a little extra flavor and bitterness courtesy of some Torani Amer. The higher proof boubon also helps to keep the flavors nice and balanced. Cheers!

3/4 oz 120-proof Bourbon
