From other users
  • I made the Drink version — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • I liked the following ratios: 1 1/2 oz rye, 1 oz vermouth, 3/4 oz lemon, 3/4 oz grenadine (Haigh's recipe). — ☆☆☆☆
  • Made it with Bulleit and homemade Grenadine. So much better than with Rose's syrup — ☆☆☆☆
  • My first cocktail with homemade grenadine, as per Morgenthaler. Used DrunkLab's recipe and liked it. Nice rye sour. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Look at Death & Co. version. Uses Templeton, Dolin (half Blanc and half Dry), 1/2 oz each of lemon juice and grenadine. Increase the Rye by 1/2 oz — ☆☆☆☆
  • Solid cocktail enjoying a resurgence. And deserving it. — ☆☆☆
  • Outstanding: sweet, refreshing, and flavorful. — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Dont have Canadian whisky so mixed bourbon and Amrut and tasted pretty good-have to try with Canadian sometime! — ☆☆☆☆
  • I made as directed w/ Sagamore Rye and homemade grenadine. Next time I will try the Boston or Death & Co. recipe which has lower grenadine maybe making it less sweet. It's good...just really sweet. Bonded Rye could also help. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Used the Drink proportions w Bulleit, Dolin, and a dash of Orange bitters. — ☆☆☆☆

Just tried this last night

Just tried this last night and really loved it. The light spices of the dry vermouth play off the other ingredients in wonderful ways. I made it with Rittenhouse 100 which seemed to have the perfect heft to set off the other ingredients but also made the drink pretty kick-ass strong. I think this will be in my regular rotation for a while.

DrunkLab's picture

A wonderful, overlooked

A wonderful, overlooked drink. When made with an LDI rye (especially Dickel, but also Bulleit) it has unexpected savory dill flavors that complement the sweet and sour beautifully. We do

1 1/2 oz Dickel rye
1/2 oz Dolin dry
1/2 oz lemon juice
1/2 oz homemade grenadine
1 ds Regan's orange.

Wife has never ever liked or

Wife has never ever liked or even tolerated whiskey over many various attempts.  She actually liked this! Used the DrunkLab recipe above. Thanks much!
