Cocktail Enthusiast has teamed up with the good people at Cocktails & Classics, the LOGO TV show that combines good drinks with classic films. Each week, Michael Urie and friends will take a close look at campy, quotable movies like Clue, Showgirls and Sister Act while drinking CE-provided cocktails. First up: Clue, and the Miss Scarlet cocktail, a New York Sour adaptation that employs rye whiskey and a topper of red wine.
2 oz rye whiskey
.75 oz fresh lemon juice
.75 oz simple syrup
.5 oz dry red wine
Add first three ingredients to a shaker. Shake with ice, then strain into a chilled coupe glass. Float 1/2 ounce of red wine over the back of a barspoon so it settles gently on top of your drink.
Cocktails & Classics premieres Sunday, March 26 at 8/7C.
