Seelbach Recipe

Seelbach Cocktail

The Seelbach Cocktail is named for the hotel where it was created in 1918.

However, it disappeared during Prohibition-a time when the hotel was not allowed to serve it. Without a speakeasy, the recipe was lost and forgotten until it was rediscovered in 1995. Served in a fluted glass adorned with fresh orange, the original recipe called for Louisville’s-own Old Forester Bourbon .

1 oz Bourbon
1/2 oz Triple Sec
