On this Thanksgiving Thursday, we show appreciation for the American Trilogy, a distinctly American riff on the Old Fashioned. We’re joined by returning friend of the show Richie Boccato, the drink’s co-creator and owner of New York’s Dutch Kills bar and Hundredweight Ice company. Listen on to learn the story behind the American Trilogy and to learn Boccato’s recipe — and don’t forget to like, review, and subscribe!
Richie Boccato’s American Triology Recipe

- 1 ounce rye whiskey, such as Michter’s

1. Add sugar cube to a chilled Old Fashioned glass and saturate with bitters and a splash of soda water.
2. Crush cube using a muddler and work to form a rough paste.
3. Add applejack, rye, and a large, single cube of ice. Stir gently, 15 times to incorporate the sugar paste.
4. Garnish with an orange twist.
