Specialty Cocktail Spotlight: Buffalo Mule

When it comes to cocktails, “mule” or “buck”  is an old-school way of describing a beverage made with ginger beer (or ale), a sort of citrus, and, of course, a spirit.  One of the most common instances of a mule is the Moscow Mule, which is made with vodka.  Since Russia is famous for its vodka, it’s easy to see how that drink earned its name.

We prefer to take the bourbon route.

Our Buffalo Mule is made with Buffalo Trace Bourbon, and this, of course, is where it gets its moniker.  Contrary to what you may be inclined to think, Buffalo Bourbon gets its name from the mammal — not the city.

Just a little fun fact to impress your friends with at parties.


1.75 oz Buffalo Trace Bourbon
1 oz Lime Juice
2 dashes Angostura Bitters
2 oz Ginger Beer


Combine ingredients in order in a large glass with ice.  Drink to your heart’s content.

Speciality Cocktail Spotlight: Manhattan

At Flat Iron Grill, we take pride not only in our inspired food selection and vast whiskey collection, but also in our ability to serve refreshing and delicious specialty cocktails. We’re excited to share some of our favorite recipes with you, and we will be spotlighting a new one every week. Give it a try at home, or come in and let us show you how it’s done!

This week we’re showcasing the classic Manhattan.  The exact origin of the drink is unknown, but it was first served in Manhattan, New York (go figure) sometime in the latter 1800s.

Recipes for the Manhattan have changed over time, and some deviate from using the traditional choice of rye whiskey in favor of bourbon or Canadian whiskey.  Not us.  We make ours with Bulleit Rye Whiskey and it’s always stirred – never shaken.


2 oz Bulleit Rye Whiskey
1 oz Vya Sweet Vermouth
1 dash Orange Bitters
1 Cherry


Combine all the first three ingredients in an ice filled pint glass and stir.  Place the cherry in a chilled martini glass, and then strain the mixture into the glass.
