Walter,

I'm wondering if you found this at Difford's Guide - they call for 1 shot each (= 1.5 oz) of Cognac and Tawny Port, 1 shot of simple (I think this is probably wrong and should be 1 dash simple), and 1/4 shot (= 1/3 oz) Maraschino, with 7 mint leaves. Please let me know and I'll correct it.

Thanks,

Zachary


Curated to change ingredients as at updated Diffard's link and to paraphrase instructions. Thanks @lumnaya
