The Batali Inquisition: Julian Van Winkle

Medium is a new place on the Internet where people share ideas and stories that are longer than 140 characters and not just for friends. It’s designed for little stories that make your day better and manifestos that change the world. It’s used by everyone from professional journalists to amateur cooks. It’s simple, beautiful, collaborative, and it helps you find the right audience for whatever you have to say. 

 

I’m thrilled to be a contributor to Medium and will be putting out a new “Batali Inquisitions” twice monthly!  Click here to learn more about Medium.

Q: WHERE AND WHEN DO YOU HAVE YOUR FAVORITE COCKTAIL AND WHAT IS IT? 

 

A: MY FAVORITE COCKTAIL IS EITHER MY BOURBON OLD-FASHIONED, WHICH YOU KNOW WELL, OR IT’S THIS NEW DRINK I CAME UP WITH LAST YEAR – THE “VANHATTAN.” I LIKE TO DRINK IT SITTING ON MY FRONT PORCH IN MICHIGAN

 

The Vanhattan:

1 ounce Kentucky bourbon

1 ounce Kentucky rye whiskey

A dash of Carpano vermouth

A dash of blood orange bitters

A brandied cheery and a bit of that juice

A twist of Orange

Shake in a shaker with ice briefly & serve neat in an Old Fashioned glass.
