the Algonquin

I have just discovered the cocktail the Algonquin, a drink made with rye, dry vermouth and pineapple juice.  The vermouth rounds this drink out and the pineapple brings out the sweeter notes in the rye and gives it a nice dry finish.  Because of the subtle flavors, balance is key in this cocktail.   Personally, I like my drinks with a little more bite.  A friend of mine altered the recipe by adding fresh squeezed lemon and a little simple syrup turning it into more of a sour cocktail.  We are offering them as a special at the restaurant and calling them the Off Season.  Pineapple is also what gives this drink its nice froth.  Deeeeelish!
