Vanderbilt's Hudson Buck Recipe

Hudson Buck Cocktail at Vanderbilt in New York City
Maryse Chevriere

Typically, a buck is a Highball drink that combines a base spirit with ginger ale and freshly-squeezed lemon juice. This one, served at The Vanderbilt in Brooklyn, New York has the unique addition of apple cider molasses sourced from a farmer upstate. It's a wonderful fall and winter cocktail that would be equally good served hot, and pairs perfectly with the restaurant's crispy blood sausage.


Build the drink in a rocks glass, stirring to combine.
