In New York, it's common to name stirred rye cocktails after neighborhoods. This one is named for a historic neighborhood in Atlanta, the city where mixologist Kellie Thorn lives. You'll make more infused whiskey than you need for this cocktail--a good thing, as it's a delicious winter sipper.


Serves 8 (serving size: a scant 1/2 cup)
