The Chancellor

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 Drink

Sam Ross • Little Branch
The Australian-born, fauxhawk-coiffed Sam Ross is a rock star in Manhattan mixology circles. A brilliant interpreter of venerable cocktails, he's made a signature of unsung classics like the Chancellor, a nicely dry variation on the Manhattan that combines Scotch, port and vermouth.

  1. Ice
  2. 2 ounces single-malt Scotch
  3. 1/2 ounce ruby port
  4. 1/2 ounce dry vermouth
  5. Dash of Peychaud's bitters
  1. Fill a pint glass with ice. Add all of the remaining ingredients and stir well. Strain the drink into a chilled coupe.
