The Improved Whiskey Cocktail



The whiskey cocktail has been a popular recipe since Jerry Thomas put the original version in his 1887 Bartenders Guide. The original cocktails were spirit based using whiskey, gin or brandy, sugar and a little bitters. When the cocktail was improved, maraschino liqueur and absinthe were added.

Beretta adds French aperitif Dubonnet Rouge. This combination magically blends the distinct flavors together to make a unique, supremely satisfying cocktail.

Improved Whiskey Cocktail Ingredients
  • 2 oz. Wild Turkey Rye
  • ¼ oz. Luxardo Liqueur
  • ¾ oz. Dubonnet
  • 2 dashes Peychaud’s Bitters


Chill a coupe glass. In a cocktail shaker or cocktail pitcher add all of the ingredients, add ice and stir for approximately a minute. Use a Winchester strainer and strain into the chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a broad lemon zest. First, squeeze the lemon over the top to release the oils then run it around the rim and place on top of the cocktail.
