Algonquin

This cocktail was named after the Algonquin Hotel, which opened its doors in 1902 in one of New York’s most fashionable neighborhoods. The hotel gained its greatest fame a few years later as the home of the Algonquin Round Table, the ongoing literary lunch started by Murdock Pemberton and Alexander Woollcott in which Harpo Marx, Dorothy Parker, Robert Benchley, George S. Kaufman and their compatriots held sway on New York’s cultural scene. There were in fact several drinks named after this historic venue, but this recipe is the one currently served by the hotel’s bartenders.

Algonquin
2 ounces rye whiskey
1 ounce dry vermouth
1 ounce pineapple juice
Garnish: Cherry
Stir with ice (to prevent the pineapple juice from foaming). Strain into a cocktail glass.
Please remember to drink safely and responsibly.
