Author Notes: Embarking on a rediscovery of classic cocktails, I decided to start with the Algonquin. The Algonquin Hotel was an icon to me as a young administrative assistant coming to NYC in the 1980s. I like to picture intellectual types hunched together around a Round Table, drinking a cool but strong drink made of rye whiskey, vermouth and pineapple juice. So here you go--let me know how you like it!Erika Kotite

Serves 1

  • 1.5 ounces Rye whiskey
  • .75 ounces Dry vermouth
  • .75 ounces Unsweetened pineapple juice
  1. Combine ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker. Stir vigorously but don’t shake (shaking will make the pineapple juice foam).
  2. Strain into a martini glass.

Is the pineapple juice I see in the supermarket typically unsweetened?

Hi Paul, Dole actually has unsweetened pineapple juice but not all supermarkets carry it. Bluebird is available on Amazon. I couldn't find it at Trader Joe's.
