The Creole Cocktail is another timeless favorite that can be found in the 1939 edition of W.C. Whitfield's Just Cocktails.

The ratio is similar to that of the original recipe, with a few tweaks and some adjustment to get the quantity up to a modern-sized cocktail. With the bourbon and vermouth, one would think that it is like a ​Manhattan, which it is. It is, however, the Benedictine that sets the Creole Cocktail apart, bringing in an herbal sweetness that, along with the maraschino, takes the taste to a different level.


Steps to Make It

  1. Pour the ingredients into a mixing glass with ice cubes.

  2. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

  3. Garnish with the lemon twist.
