Drink: The Monarch
Breaking out the fancy words for fancy drinks; this is my favorite drink at Julep in Westport. It’s fragrant and served perfectly cooled in this gorgeous bar on Pennsylvania. Opened this spring by Beau Williams and his wife, Keely, the whiskey cocktail club is full of talented bartenders, southern food, and some seriously great cocktails.
The drink: sweet, citrusy, refreshing, different.
Made with Rittenhouse Rye, Luxardo Maraschino, Cocchi Vermouth di Torino, and Olive Heights Braeburn Belle Bitters, it’s smooth and full of great taste without anything but delicious lingering flavors.
