<p><strong>Ian Farley, Prohibition</strong><br /> A riff on a classic stirred martini, “Double-Breasted” tastes smooth and silky, but leaves the oaky complexity of the barrel-soaked Reposado unobscured. “It’s a posh way to take a shot,” says Prohibition’s Ian Farley. Cut with Scrappy’s lime and chocolate bitters—small batches special-ordered from Seattle—and sweetened with raw agave, the concoction is “accessible for someone who doesn’t usually like tequila,” he explains. Emphasizing the drink’s unisex appeal, the Charleston native sought out a name that conveyed style and versatility. Enter “Double-Breasted,” an ode to a sophisticated suit and its recent revival.</p> <p> </p> <p> </p>
