Twenty years ago, October, James & Elizabeth were married on the dunes in Montauk NY. It was an elegant intimate affair, just immediate family and friends. They hosted the reception themselves and my prepared gift was a filet mignon served with this whiskey butter sauce. No one remembers the temperature that day being cold and cloudy, but everyone remembers this sauce!
