Howitzer (Wyoming)

Renée G.


Yee-Haw! When in cowboy country, do as the locals do – name your cocktail after a historic artillery piece. Inspired by the Chatham Artillery Punch from Charles H. Baker (the 19th century American author known for his cocktail prowess). The Howitzer packs some heat with its rousing blend of rye whiskey, cognac, red wine, cinnamon and bitters...and it’s served hot.
