Remembering the Maine in Baltimore
While on a recent business trip to Baltimore, I had occasion to visit a great cocktail bar called the B & O American Brasserie. Brendan Dorr is the master mixologist in the house. One of the classics “Remember the Maine” was so tasty that I had it several days in a row. Here a version that uses our booze:
- 2 oz Hoppin Eights Whiskey
- 3/4 oz Dolin sweet Vermouth
- 2 tsp Cherry Herring
- 1/2 tsp Stonebarn Ouzo (or absinth)
Combine in a mixing glass with ice and stir. Strain into a cold glass. Garnish with a cherry or lemon peel.
If in Baltimore, visit the Visionary Arts Museum, where this singular wood carving is on display.
