1792 Signature Cocktails: The Man o’ War

by Scott Wagner

This sweet-and-stout combination is worthy of a triple crown winning name

A drink named after a horse that won twenty of the twenty one races in which he ran is surely a winner. That’s what we tell ourselves whenever we shake up a Man o’ War, anyway. Developed by Allen Katz, it’s got the grounded flavors of bourbon, the sweeter notes of vermouth, and a crisp citrus finish. Or as one guy put it, “It’s like an Arnold Palmer and a Mint Julep got together for a wild night out.” 


Man o’ War Bourbon Cocktail Ingredients: 

  • 2 ounces 1792 Bourbon
  • 1 ounce orange curaçao
  • 1/2 ounce vermouth
  • 1/2 ounces lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • Lemon peel and cherry for garnish

Man o’ War Bourbon Cocktail Directions: 

  1. Add 1792 Bourbon, vermouth,  orange curaçao, and lemon juice into a shaker with ice and shake until chilled.
  2. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
  3. Garnish with lemon peel and cherry.
