The historic Route 66 is turning 90 this year and so is Chicago’s Hotel Allegro, a Kimpton boutique property. In honor of the building’s 90th Anniversary and the 90th Anniversary of America’s Highway (which originated in Chicago), Bar Allegro is celebrating with its Route 66 tribute cocktail, Kerouac’s Journey. The cocktail is a boozy version of an apple pie and dedicated to Jack Kerouac who loved the road and his liquor!
Here’s the recipe:
1 oz Laird’s Apple Brandy
1 oz Sailor Jerry’s
½ oz Bols Apricot Brandy
½ oz Demi syrup
Top with Ginger Beer
First rim ½ of a rocks glass with a sugar and cinnamon. Shake all ingredients except ginger beer and strain into rocks glass over fresh ice. Top with Ginger Beer.
