Hot of the iphone from Manhattan
So, last week I went to a Cocktail Class at the Astor Center and it was all about WHISKEY! Our "welcome cocktail" was "The Roadster." (Every class should start with a cocktail, don't you think?) 
Anyhoo...this drink was delicious, and it went down easily...so easily in fact that I forgot to take a picture of it, until it was gone....oops....but the glass still looked pretty!

Here's how our instructor, Elayne Duke, master mixologist and alcohol know-it-all told us to mix it up:

2 oz. Bulleit
.75 oz Orchard Apricot
.5 oz St. Germaine (Elderflower Liqueur)
.75 oz fresh lemon juice

Mix the ingredients in a large tumble filled with ice.  Stir with a teardrop bar spoon.  Strain into a coupe glass, rimmed with sugar and garnish with an orange peel.  Like most Whiskey drinks, it's strong, but tasty! 
 
Enjoy XOXO Martha
