Tasting Notes

The Huntsman

The Huntsman features the feel of a whiskey sour with dark fruit and vanilla notes. This beautiful Winter drink features a merlot float, creating a captivating red rim at the top of the cocktail. Mix one up or order from the Main House and enjoy!

1 oz Rittenhouse Rye
1 oz vanilla syrup (Le Monin Vanilla Syrup works well)
1 oz lemon juice
1 egg white

Shake all ingredients in a tin without ice. This is known as a "dry shake" and is an important first step to ensure the egg white gets incorporated fully. Then add ice and shake again. Strain all ingredients in to a rocks glass with fresh ice. Give the cocktail about 5-10 seconds to form a foamy white layer at the top. Over the back of a bar spoon, lightly pour about a half ounce of red wine into the cocktail. You will see a distinct red rim start to form just below the surface of the foam. We use our Pride Merlot for this effect.
