My good friend Sam Kim—caterer, mixologist, event planner and amazing shoe-wearer—taught me about the intricate beauty of whiskey when she was the bartendress at neighborhood haunt, Palais Royale. Just in time for the summer, she now brings us the Samhattan! Check out her blog for more food craziness!

Two Servings

3 Parts Rye Whiskey
