This year’s Lincoln Day Dinner will feature two patriotic cocktails to wet your whistle and put you in a festive and generous mood:
1. "The Lincoln” – simple, elegant, and symbolic of the Civil War. The whiskey to represent the South and the maple for the North, while the smoke evokes the guns of battle and the red bitters, the blood of the battlefield. Nashville’s Corsair Smoked Whiskey, Maple Syrup, and Peychaud’s bitters. Shaken with ice and strained into a chilled glass.
2. "The LGB” (Let’s Go Brandon) – Tito’s Classic Gimlet. Unlike our current President, this one is a real classic. Tito’s Handmade Texas Vodka, lime juice, and Simple Syrup. Shaken with ice, poured into chilled martini glass, and served with a garnish of lime.
