Diamondback (Maryland)

Renée G.


Before Prohibition, Maryland led the nation in rye whiskey production – the house beverage at the Lord Baltimore Hotel’s Diamondback Lounge was this rye whiskey based cocktail. Some might call this formula “aggressive,” and they wouldn’t be wrong. The mix of rye whiskey, applejack ad Yellow Chartreuse is burly and deeply herbaceous, best suited for those times when a Manhattan simple won’t do.
