In the Kitchen: Gold Rush Cocktail Recipe

The Flatiron Room's Nick Patton breaks it down

If you’re single in New York, there’s a good chance you’re constantly reminded that the ratio of women to men favors the latter.

Unless you go to The Flatiron Room, a new music lounge and cocktail bar with more than 500 types of whiskey.

To celebrate its soft opening, we asked bartender Nick Patton (two words: British accent) to share a few of his favorite drink recipes. He gave us a tried-and-true Gold Rush (above, great to make in big batches should you be partying or tailgating) and the bar’s knock-you-over 1920s cocktail.

Both are dangerously easy and satisfying, whether you fancy yourself a whiskey drinker or not (though one visit to Flatiron and you will be).

Just remember a little liquid courage goes a long way.

The Flatiron Room, 37 West 26th Street, between Fifth and Sixth Avenues (212-725-3860 or theflatironroom.com).
