The recipe link lists the rye

The recipe link lists the rye and Dubonnet as 1/2 jigger, isn't that 1 oz each, not 1.5 oz?  FWIW, the Martin's Index app shows those as 1 oz with the rest of the ingredient proportions the same (and also notes that this is one of the earliest recipes that specified Cointreau by brand).  I get it, that's a pretty small drink by today's standards, but the other ingredients should probably be scaled up as well with an extra dash (or a range of 2-3 dashes).
