As true believers of the work hard, play hard mantra, we present you with It’s Been a Long Week, a weekly column aimed at awarding some liquid appreciation to you for just being yourself, dammit. Make a glass or two on us, you deserve it.


Bowery Meat Company’s The Wishbone
New York’s Bowery Meat Company might have established itself by its steaks, but The Wishbone—a cinnamon-infused bourbon beverage—throws another delicious hat into the ring. Notes of spice join warm waves of cream in this try-at-home version of the complicated cocktail’s usual three-part process.



  • 2 oz. Old Forester Bourbon
  • 0.75 oz. Simple syrup
  • 0.75oz. Lemon juice
