SEATTLE — The Downton Abbey movie opens in theaters today, and we are pretty excited about it.  To help us celebrate, Isaac Vicknair from Queen Anne's Tin Lizzie Lounge is showing us how to mix the perfect period-correct cocktails from the Official Downton Abbey Cocktail Book:

  • New York Sour (non-alcoholic)
  • Last Word
  • Corpse Reviver No 2
  • The Cheerful Charlies

See you at the movies!

  • Lime wheel, for garnish

Combine the gin, maraschino liqueur, Chartreuse, and lime juice in a shaker.
