Time for a Drink: Diamondback Recipe

recipe image

Let’s start the weekend right–with a cocktail recipe from Paul Clarke (The Cocktail Chronicles). Need more than one? Hit up the archives. Cheers!

Sometimes, at this time of the year, you want a drink that’s light and crisp. Something with a gentle character that’s as soft and invigorating as a cool autumn breeze.

The Diamondback isn’t one of those drinks. With the assertive double-barreled flavor of rye whiskey and applejack and the robust herbaceous richness of green Chartreuse, the Diamondback isn’t a casual little tipple for a lazy afternoon. Bold, strong and deeply alluring, the Diamondback is a robust fortifier, the kind of drink well suited to capping the work week and getting the weekend started.

  • 1 1/2 ounces rye whiskey
  • 3/4 ounce applejack
  • 3/4 ounce green Chartreuse
  1. Combine ingredients in a mixing glass and fill with ice. Stir well and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a cherry.
