Best Presidential Cocktail

Roosevelt Spur at FIG

Staff Pick

In our family, we tend to order anything that has the name Roosevelt in it. Teddy and FDR happen to be two of our presidential favorites. But the surprise of this FIG cocktail was that the taste was as good as the name. A blend of rye, Bärenjäger — a honey-flavored vodka liqueur — sweet vermouth, and chocolate bitters combine to make this drink worthy of a bully pulpit. The irony is old Rough Rider was a teetotaler. But if he had liked to imbibe, we’d like to think he’d slurp a few of these. —Kinsey Gidick
