Vanderbilt's Hudson Buck Recipe
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.
1/2 ounce ginger ale, preferably homemade
1 ounce apple cider molasses
2 ounces whiskey, preferably Wild Turkey Bourbon
Dash of allspice bitters
Build the drink in a rocks glass, stirring to combine.
