Artist's Special Cocktail

1 oz Rye (or Bourbon)
1 oz Sherry
12 oz Lemon juice
12 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

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.
