Cocktail Recipe: The Algonquin
A toast to the 1920s when the The Algonquin’s Round Table was in its heyday, and Dorothy Parker and Robert Benchley presided over the New York literary scene. Here, a recipe for their signature cocktail.
Two ounces of rye
1 ounce of dry vermouth
1 ounce of pineapple juice
Put the ingredients in a cocktail shaker, shake, strain and serve, garnished with a maraschino cherry — and then talk as brilliantly as Dorothy Parker for the rest of the night.
