A Martini for Whiskey Lovers
Step aside, gin and vodka.
We're of the opinion that vodka is not all it's cracked up to be. Here's a martini for whiskey drinkers. Created by Shae Minnillo, a bartender at Manolito in New Orleans, this take on a dirty martini swaps out gin or vodka for whiskey. "I wanted to combine a couple of my favorite, classic stirred drinks—a Tipperary and a Widow’s Kiss. This is a bold, spirit-forward cocktail that has a nuance and is sure to warm the mind and soul," Minnillo tells us. The result is a food-friendly cocktail great for cold-weather sipping.

Add all ingredients except for the orange bitters to a mixing glass.
Stir with large, cubed ice and strain using a julep strainer into a chilled coupe glass.
Express the orange bitters over the drink and discard.
