Rye-se Up

Rye Whiskey , Modern Classics

For football season, we had a bartender from each NFL team's hometown provide the perfect cocktail to represent their team.
AMER bartender David Petro’s Atlanta Falcons–inspired cocktail is made with rye whiskey and is served up, as he says, “to represent the Falcons high-flying offense.” The deep red color evokes the team's color. Petro uses lemon sherbet to deepen the flavors of the drink and egg white to give it a nice rich texture.

Burgundy & Gold

Rye Whiskey , Modern Classics

For football season, we had a bartender from each NFL team's hometown provide the perfect cocktail to represent their team.
“Being a Washington Redskins' fan in San Francisco is tough, as I imagine it is for any foreign fan in a city that's not their own,” says Kevin Diedrich, the owner and bartender of Pacific Cocktail Haven. Diedrich’s drink is a Whiskey Sour variation, bolstered by citrusy kalamansi and balanced with a deep, fruity ruby port float. It’s based on Copper Fox rye whiskey. “It’s a nod to rye whiskey, which was one of the first spirits to be made in D.C.,” he says. The kalamansi gives the cocktail a great gold color, and the port float adds the burgundy, echoing the team colors. “A gold-rimmed glass is a plus,” he says.
