How to Make It

Add the whiskey, coconut milk, and lime juice to the glass. Stir well, fill the glass with ice, then top if off with ginger beer. Stir lightly and enjoy.

Why We Like It

The Men’s Double is my take on The Gentleman, a classic cocktail with a past as confusing as Don Draper’s. I’ve seen it made with whiskey and ginger beer, bourbon and club soda, cognac and drambuie, and brandy and creme de menthe. My twist on this confusing classic is made with ingredients I always have on hand: whiskey, ginger beer, limes, and coconut milk. Like Sochi — a humid resort on the eastern shore of the Black Sea — the Men’s Double looks like winter and feels a little tropical.
