Alqonquin Martini


There’s something about fresh pineapple juice that makes drinking bourbon on a hot summer night not only appropriate, but absolutely necessary - especially when combined with blanco vermouth and bitters.


The Algonquin was built in 1902 as a residential hotel in Midtown Manhattan that quickly became the favorite haunt amongst actors, writers (namely the famed Vicious Circle) and journalists. With a crowd like this, your namesake cocktail needed to be exotic (fresh pineapple juice, amirite?) and edgy (bitters every time). And so, a cocktail star was born, glowing under the blue lights legendary actor John Barrymore convinced manager-turned-owner Frank Case to use in order to make one appear more attractive. Total beast move, just like shaking one of these up at your next soiree.


  1. POUR bourbon, pineapple juice, Blanco Vermouth and bitters into a cocktail shaker and fill with ice

  2. SHAKE vigorously for 15-20 seconds

  3. STRAIN into a chilled coupe glass

  4. GARNISH with a fresh pineapple wedge
