CLASSIC IS KEY. Cocktails are tried-and-true, and use spirits like sherry and port (and even beer), in thoughtful ways. Our many vermouths offer a new way to look at the martini. We are into handmade. In fact, our barkeeps are busy squeezing juices, making purees and gathering local ingredients to mix-up the perfect libation.
And there's something we're especially proud of at Red Owl: We have one of the largest selections of bourbons, scotches and gins in Philadelphia.
Here are two recipes from Red Owl
1/4 oz. Luxardo Maraschino
1/4 oz. demerara syrup
3 dashes of angostura bitters
2 oz Bols Genever
Stirred over ice and served in a rocks glass.
CAREFUL WITH THE MINT EUGENE
1-3/4 oz Woodford Reserve
1/2 dolin dry vermouth
1/2 cherry heering
3/4 oz luxardo maraschino
2 scant dashes of mint bitters
Stir well. Strain into martini glass
