Rye Two Ways Cocktail Recipe From The Churchill

The cocktail list at the Churchill doesn't hide bartender Mia Sarazen's motives: She wants people to drink more bourbon, more rye. There's the user-friendly orgeat-and-whiskey drink Baby's First Bourbon, and an excellent, choose-your-own-adventure rye cocktail too. The latter, made with grenadine, lemon and dry vermouth, can be ordered up, or served over ice and lengthened with Allagash white ale, the malt flavors of the beer playing up the rye's spice.
