MB Cocktail Contest: Ben Allen vs. Sean Zimmer

Ben Allen

Ingredients:
2 oz rye whiskey (Rittenhouse bonded)
1/2 oz Cointreau liqueur
1/2 oz Jagermeister liqueur
2 dashes Angostura bitters

Stir all ingredients with cracked ice and strain into chilled cocktail glass. Twist lemon peel over glass and add as garnish.

Sean Zimmer

Ingredients:
2 parts Alberta Premium Rye Whiskey
2 parts Drambuie
1 part Cointreau
1.5 parts fresh lime juice

Stir with ice 10 times clockwise, 10 times counter-clockwise. Drain into chilled martini glass. Repeat until Bastardized.

Winner: Sean Zimmer
Score: 3-2
Game Summary: We admit to "lime bias," but the majority of the judges found Zimmer's cocktail to be more complex and worthwhile, with the lingering Drambuie stretching it out nicely. Ben Allen's drink was a worthy contender and notable for bringing Jagermeister back into serious conversations.
