Bishop Cocktail Recipe

Look around and you will find countless recipes for a drink called the bishop cocktail. A lot of them are a sort of red wine-fruit punch hybrid that is a bit like a simplified sangria. This is a nice cocktail, but you should know about another bishop cocktail as well. Bishop is a classic cocktail and it’s a bit more interesting than the popular modern drinks with the same name. Here is a photograph from the 1935 printing of The Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Book by A.S. The owner of the farm. There are actually two versions in the famous bartending book, one that serves one person and one that serves a crowd. The classic bishops contain rum, which is something most modern drinks do not include, and it makes a huge difference. Drinks made with it make the transition from dressed-up wine to the cocktail world. Adding rum adds depth to the flavor. It is a small change, but an important one. No matter how you prepare it, the Bishop cocktail is an enjoyable drink that will appeal to drinkers of all tastes.
