For this week’s Whiskey Wednesday, we are featuring a drink that has definitely endured the ultimate test of time – The Millionaire. Invented during the Prohibition Era (it seems like every whiskey cocktail we feature was invented during this time. Pretty ironic considering it was the one time period when alcohol was illegal if you ask me), “The Millionaire” was a very popular name for cocktails at the time. However, the only cocktail whose recipe stuck around was the one with rye whiskey in it – no surprise there!
Because of the prevalence of the name, little is known about the Millionaire cocktail we all have learned to love. However, we do know that this refreshing drink is the perfect way to celebrate Hump Day this week (and finally get a chance to enjoy some of Lost Republic’s new Rye Whiskey)… and that’s all that really matters right?
2 oz. Lost Republic Rye Whiskey
½ oz. Grand Marnier
1 dash grenadine
1 egg white
Add all ingredients into a cocktail shaker, add ice and shake until distilled, strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Enjoy & cheers!
