Comments

Tasty; fairly "tiki", which was surprising.  A "part" is not an "ounce"; the recipe makes 2.

See the same ratio with....?more temperance?....at, e.g. http://imbibemagazine.com/churchill-manhattan-variation/

Also: many recipes I saw agreed on the Johnnie, but called for Cointreau or other triple sec rather than the Gran Marnier.


I'll adjust the number of drinks. I saw that Imbibe link and read it was a Manhattan variant, shuddered, and found another version. It's no more a Manhattan variant than a Daiquiri is a Old Fashioned variant. Thanks,  Zachary


Not bad. I shook in a shaker since it has fresh lime juice. I made with dewars. Well balanced for a scotch cocktail.
