Davenport Instructions

The Davenport is a classic cocktail that combines the rich flavors of whiskey with the tanginess of lemon juice and the sweetness of simple syrup. This cocktail is perfect for those who enjoy a strong and balanced drink.

To make a Davenport, you will need a mixing glass, a cocktail shaker, a strainer, ice cubes, whiskey, lemon juice, and simple syrup.

Start by filling the mixing glass halfway with ice cubes. Then, pour in 2 ounces of whiskey, 1 ounce of lemon juice, and 1/2 ounce of simple syrup. Stir the mixture gently for about 30 seconds to thoroughly combine the ingredients.

Next, place the strainer on top of the mixing glass and pour the mixture into the cocktail shaker. Shake the cocktail shaker vigorously for about 15 seconds to chill the drink and create a frothy texture.

Finally, place the strainer on top of a chilled cocktail glass and pour the Davenport into the glass. Garnish the cocktail with a lemon twist or a cherry, if desired.

The Davenport is a sophisticated and flavorful cocktail that is sure to impress your guests. Serve it at your next gathering and enjoy the timeless appeal of this classic drink.

Best served in a Highball Glass.
