Last New Year’s Eve, Rachel Maddow taught us how to make her favorite drink, the Jack Rose. Her quest to improve nightlife is ongoing, and earlier this week she “judged” a Scotch-cocktail competition hosted by Gothamist. There was no winner (or at least not one that samplers could remember), but there were some promising new recipes from the likes of the Randolph’s Jason Littrell and Yael Vengroff of Woodson & Ford. Get out your jiggers. [Gothamist]
