    THE best cocktail in my opinion. Make your own Brandied Cherries instead of the nasty neon red store bought cherries.  -  12 Jun 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I like this cocktail made with dry vermouth and an olive.  -  08 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Finest, easiest, most interesting cocktail around - rye whisky gives it a distinctive edge, and don't forget those bitters!  -  19 Dec 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
