Our Comment:

Classically made with dry vermouth, this vintage cocktail is so much better with bianco vermouth. in which case, ripe pineapple fruitiness and rye whiskey sit harmoniously together in a Manhattan-like cocktail with subtle Peychaud's bitters the finishing touch.

Variant:

If you don't want serve with a frothy head then then stir instead of shake. Also consider serving on-the-rocks rather than straight-up.

About:

One of several classic cocktails accredited to New York City's Algonquin Hotel in the 1930s. Its true origins are lost in time.
