The Adam and Eve cocktail.

It's a two-for-one kind of cocktail this Valentine's Day, and what better way to celebrate your loved one? This rye whiskey cocktail is made by Duane Sylvestre at BOURBON STEAK, the bar at the Four Seasons Hotel Washington, D.C.

Deliver Ingredients


  • 2 Ounces Knob Creek Rye Whiskey
  • 1 1/2 Ounce Cointreau
  • 3 dashes Dale Degroff’s Pimento Bitters
  • 4 dashes Peychaud’s Bitters
  • Lemon peel
  • 4-5 Ounces Piper Heidsieck Champagne


Add above ingredients (except the champagne) into the mixing glass. Add ice and stir with the bar spoon. Place the strainer on top of the pint glass and strain about 1 ½ ounces into chilled champagne flute (Eve) and strain the balance into a chilled rocks glass (Adam). Top Eve with Piper Heidsieck Champagne and garnish both Adam and Eve with a lemon twist. (Cutting one smaller twist from the larger twist with a cutter is optional.)

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
