About this Cocktail

Named after the Seelbach Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky where it was first crafted in 1917. The Seelbach cocktail is a mixes Cointreau and both Angostura and Peychaud’s bitters on a base of Bourbon (Woodford works for me) and has a touch of sparkling at the end.

  • 1 oz Bourbon
  • .5 oz Cointreau
  • 7 dashes of Angostura bitters
  • 7 dashes of Peychaud bitters
  • Champagne to top
  • Lemon twist

Stir ingredients briefly over ice, strain into a chilled flute or coupe and top with Champagne.
Peel the longest lemon twist you can for garnish and enjoy.

    My son is moving down down to Louisville for work. We went to the Seelbach Bar and had one. Great drink in a great bar. I even showed BarNotes to the bartender. He was bummed because he uses an Android.
