Most great American horses come from Kentucky. The same thing has long been said about American whiskey. But things are changing in both cases. New York bred racehorses, like Zivo, are among the best in the country. And another NY-bred horse, Artemis Agrotera, will be among the favorites for the Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare sprint. It’s New York’s time to shine.
And so it is with whiskey as well. In support of Artemis, we offer this original-to-the-book cocktail, a Gravesend Smash, named for the defunct Brooklyn racetrack.
