Want to make a traditional 1920’s cocktail with a dash of orange, lemon, strawberry, maple and mystery? This “Miss Fisher’s Mystery” whisky cocktail is perfect for a misty, moonlit Autumn’s eve.
My very favorite show is Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, and since her favorite spirit is whisky, I thought I’d make a whisky cocktail for her with ingredients that are a little tricky to place.
There’s whisky, of course, but I used 3 kinds of sweet flavors that mysteriously blend together, but never make the cocktail too sweet.
To create a garnish like this, you’ll just need some pretty dry flowers, a few maple leaves, a little thread to tie them together and very steady fingers. I love combining dry and fresh flowers and greenery for garnishes. It makes my cocktails look so exciting.
I hope you love this 1920’s cocktail as much as I do!

The “Miss Fisher’s Mystery” 1920’s Cocktail
- 2 ounces Michter’s Rye whisky
- ½ ounce Grand Marnier
- 1 tbsp. lemon juice – about half a small lemon
- ½ tsp. maple syrup
- ¼ tsp. strawberry preserves – a fancy brand
- Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with a good handful of ice. Shake vigorously – enough to really break up the preserves. Pour into a frosted glass and serve.
Oh Genevieve! I can’t wait to attempt the mystery cocktail and watch Phyrne flounce around! I just hope mine looks half as beautiful as yours!
