I adapted this recipe from Bulleit’s Facebook page. It’s low-volume and quite easy to drink.
Dandy Candy Cocktail
- 1 oz bourbon
- 1/4 oz sweet vermouth
- 1/4 oz triple sec
- 1 dash Bitter End Jamaican Jerk bitters (buy from Cocktail Kingdom), or other bitters of choice
- stir with ice and strain into a small cocktail glass
- garnish with an orange twist
Sounds great! I like triple sec with bourbon and sweet vermouth, ever since I read about the Employees Only “Modern Manhattan” in the bar’s cocktail book “Speakeasy”: http://stayathomecocktails.blogspot.com/2011/04/book-review-speakeasy.html. But their proportions are very different.
Jamaican Jerk bitters also sounds interesting. I may have to look into that, although I doubt there is a large use for it in a home bar.
Thanks for the drink. I will be making one tonight. Also, cool glass.
Thanks for naming a coctail after me! Great composition on the picture.
