The Crash that Brought Tony Closer to Bartending and How to Make an As Time Goes By Cocktail


Let’s be honest: The martini is not exactly the most accessible drink. While some are blessed with an immediate affinity for the dry, juniper flavors, for others it might take a bit of getting used to.

Which is one of the great things about Bourbon and Branch bartender Tony Devencenzi’s drink, As Time Goes By. It's featured in one of our new videos. The video introduces Tony—who incidentally works at one of the most storied bars in craft cocktails—and also teaches you how to make this delicious drink. It’s a sweeter twist to the martini with yummy, non-cloying, non-tacky cocoa notes.

You might recognize Tony from the last video we made, How to Make a VOC aka What Goes Into a Cocktail. We had so much fun on that shoot that it was a quick yes when Tony asked us if we could make another video for him. (It was even more exciting when Tony submitted this video to Diageo’s World Class Bartender contest and won a trip to New York to compete in the finals!)

Meet Tony and learn how to make his cocktail (you can also order it at Bourbon and Branch as a cocktail called “The Mistress.” Look for Tony!):

As Time Goes By - The Recipe:

1.5 oz Tanqueray 10
1 oz Dolin Blanc Vermouth
.5 oz Cocchi Americano
.25 oz Gran Classico Bitter
1 Dash Angostura Orange Bitters

Stir over ice and serve up in a coupe glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.
