First off, this is a tasty little number that I will be adding to my repertoire. Very much old school in flavor, but so easy to make and imbibe. Of course, it probably didn’t hurt that I used Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye and Cointreau. This makes the perfect aperitif before virtually any meal.
The only caveat that I have is in the mixing instructions. It should be obvious that this drink is meant to be stirred, not shaken. If you do end up shaking it, you will get a overdiluted, bland cocktail. Be warned!
1.5oz Canadian whiskey
0.5oz triple sec
0.5oz simple syrup
1 dash Angostura bitters
Shake with ice and strain into chilled cocktail glass.
