  • Made with Makers Mark-might taste better with lemon juice. Do either grow in Harlan County?!
  • Not sure what this has to do with Harlan County but it's tart and tasty.
  • Tart, succulent, tasty

No, I believe that I imported this from another user's database. I cannot find a good on-line reference for the quantities, although the ingredients seem correct. I don't find the syrup mentioned. I updated the attribution. If anyone can confirm the ingredients and quantities, I'd love to update the recipe and mark it as authentic.

Made stirred with Makers Mark and worked well. Added a dash of cherry vanilla bitters which rounded it out nicely
