This dark, rich cocktail from Charleston mixologist Ryan Casey tastes uncannily like root beer. Casey, a fan of Wes Anderson movies, named the drink after Owen Wilson’s man-child character in The Royal Tenenbaums. “It’s a grown-up play on something familiar to us when we were kids,” he says.  Slideshow: Whiskey CocktailsRecipe from Food & Wine Cocktails 2015
