The Banker’s Punch was created by Jack McGarry, co-founder of New York City’s Dead Rabbit bar and a winner of the prestigious International Bartender of the Year award back in 2013.
The Dead Rabbit is still considered to be one of the world’s finest bars and can be found on Water Street on the very southern tip of Manhattan Island, just south of the city’s financial district. Making the name the ‘Bankers Punch’ something of a double entendre.
The Dead Rabbit serves this raspberry infused take on a whiskey sour with one large ice cube in a coupe glass and with a grating of fresh nutmeg. If you don’t have a mould for large ice, we’d recommend simply serving it in an ice filled rock glass instead.
