Cocktail recipes for your Boardwalk Empire viewing party

To celebrate the season premiere of HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire” on Sunday, September 25, we created this exclusive Templeton Rye-inspired “Boardwalk Empire” viewing party guide, complete with all the essentials you need to plan and host your own 1920s-inspired get-together. Whether you’re dressing the part in your finest flapper or gangster attire, cooking up your favorite era-appropriate food, or serving up 1920s-inspired cocktails to keep your guests abuzz during the season premiere, we’ve got you covered.

No party is complete without a signature cocktail, and we all know that Nucky’s favorite spirit was rye whiskey, so we asked a few of our favorite mixologists to help us create three 1920s-inspired Templeton Rye cocktails for you to enjoy while watching the season premiere.
