1 oz Rye (or Bourbon)
1 oz Sherry

1⁄2 oz Redcurrant syrup

Shake, Straight Up, Cocktail


Made with both Jim Beam Bourbon and Russell 6 Rye. Both really excellent. Be careful with Lemon if using Fino -- was a bit dry with Rye.


Original recipe is 1/3 Whisky, 1/3 Sherry, 1/6 Lemon juice, 1/6 Groseille syrup (redcurrant)

Curated - reverted recipe to original Savoy ingredients (including vagueness on the part of the Sherry, and Groseille syrup instead of Creme de Cassis). Improved attribution as per the Savoy book.
