Born in the 1830s at the Roosevelt Hotel bar, America's oldest cocktail combined the aged whiskey that had found its way down the Mississippi River with that most savory of New Orleans' drink inventions, Peychaud's Bitters. We substitute the anise-flavored absinthe for our own Armour & Oak Apple Brandy.

2 parts Resurgens

1/2 part simple syrup

5 dashes Peychaud's Bitters

Spritz Armour & Oak Apple Brandy

Lemon peel

Spritz glass with Armour & Oak Apple Brandy (easiest with an atomizer). Express the lemon peel into the coupe and drop in. Stir the Resurgens, simple syrup, and bitters with ice and strain into the glass.

The Renaissance Manhattan

The Manhattan dates to the 1870s, when Winston Churchill's mother, Lady Randolph Churchill, called for something especially celebratory at New York's Manhattan Club. Although the Manhattan now often features bourbon, the original called for rye.

Resurgens' chocolatey character adds additional complexity.

2 parts Resurgens Rye

1 part Carpano Antica vermouth

10 drops 1821 Tart Cherry & Saffron bitters

1 orange peel

Stir Resurgens, vermouth, and bitters in an ice-filled glass or shaker for 20 seconds. Strain into a coupe or Martini glass and express a twist of orange peel into the glass.

Slang for "the boys" in Italian, the "fan-choo-lee" adds amaro to the Manhattan while skipping the bitters for a slightly elevated, menthol profile. Although the original calls for The Bartender's Handshake, Fernet Branca, we find that the caramel notes of Averna interact more deliciously with the already somewhat minty finish of Resurgens.

2 parts Resurgens

1 part Carpano Antica vermouth

1/2 part Averna

Stir Resurgens, vermouth, and Averna in an ice-filled glass or shaker for 20 seconds. Strain into a coupe or Martini glass.
