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.

How to Make It

Combine first 3 ingredients in a martini pitcher with ice; stir until outside of pitcher is cold. Strain into 8 small cocktail glasses. Garnish with sage, if desired.

Chef's Notes

Total time: 5 min. (plus 1 week for infusing rye)

This drink wowed our guests at a fall gathering. It's definitely worth waiting for the rye to get fully infused with the pear mixture. We hoarded the last little bit of rye; next time we'll make a full recipe.
