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!

WOW!! This was excellent. My son wanted to try some whiskey recipe and we saw this. I thought I'd take a chance even though it wasn't rated and we're so glad we did. I used Johnny Walker Red whiskey and Rice wine vinegar (all I had). We served it over thin sliced sirloin steak and rice. We weren't to hungry before but we could have eaten more with this sauce. We highly recommend this.
