The Rambler

“The Rambler is one of our guests’ favorite go-to cocktails for brunch,” says Eric Marx, co-owner of the Wayfarer in New York City, whose team created the recipe. “Ginger and mint are ideal flavor pairings for whiskey, and the Abita Light finishes the cocktail just right to make it easy to drink and ideal for any time of year.”


  • 2 sprigs mint
  • 2 slices ginger
  • 2 oz. Maker’s Mark Bourbon
  • 1 oz. honey syrup
  • 1 oz. lemon juice
  • Abita Light beer or other light all-malt lager


Muddle 1 mint sprig and ginger in a shaker. Add bourbon, syrup, and lemon juice, and shake. Double strain over fresh ice in a pilsner glass. Top with beer and garnish with the remaining mint sprig.
