      A classic recipe for a cocktail that will mainly appeal to people who like a slightly sweeter drink. Works best using whisky with a fairly neutral taste.

      Great recipe! I have never tried one of these before, and I like it! I had a new bottle of bitters in the liquor cabinet so I thought I'd give it a whirl; it smells wonderful. I added a squeeze of lemon juice and I used Crown Royal Special Reserve. Made for veg*n tag.
