Whiskey • Savory
The Doppelgänger Martini

Finally, a Martini for whiskey drinkers. Created by Jillian Vose, the bar manager at the famed Dead Rabbit in New York, this earthy take on a Dirty Martini swaps out gin or vodka for Powers John’s Lane Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey, a limited release that lends the cocktail a rich, creamy roundness while retaining its high proof heat. To mimic the savory element of olive brine, Vose combines celery bitters and caraway-heavy aquavit. The result is an ultra-food-friendly cocktail perfect for cold weather sipping. It’s delicious paired with game birds, a hefty pork chop or any traditional Irish fare.
