2. Prospect: The Prospector
It may be named for the hordes of pioneers who raced into the Gold Rush, but this mix of Famous Grouse Scotch Whisky, Madeira, Benedictine, and house-made bitters is all class. Served in a martini glass, a flaming orange branded with the Prospect P shows that this brown-liquor-based concoction may be fancy, but it hasn't forgotten its frontier roots.
