The liberal cocktail is often forgotten, yet it is a perfect dinner drink that deserves a new era. This play was originally produced in the early 1900’s and has been adapted numerous times over the years. An Amer Picon or Amer Torani liqueur is usually mixed with rye whisky, sweet vermouth, and an amaro liqueur to make the liberal cocktail. It is mainly the proportion of those three ingredients that differs among the variations.
We have modified this recipe to cater to modern tastes and made it less sweet than the original one. In addition, during the years when rye whiskey just was not as readily available (or as good) as it is today, it was more common than ever to serve bourbon.

Once you discover what makes this beverage so desirable, you’ll realize why drinkers of fine cocktails have been drawn to it for so long.
