Cocktail hour tonight while cooking Chicken Kyiv: The Churchill. Created by legendary Savoy Hotel barman Joe Gilmore for frequent guest Sir Winston Churchill. A riff on the Manhattan with a sweeter flavor. 1-1/2 oz peated Scotch (my go-to for this is Monkey Shoulder; I prefer to mix with a blend) 1/2 oz sweet vermouth 1/2 oz orange liqueur 1/2 oz fresh lime juice Stir with ice, double strain into a chilled coupe glass. Serve neat. No garnish. I mean, can you even imagine Churchill’s volcanic reaction if someone served him a cocktail with a fancy modern garnish?
