A rich, nutty whiskey sour variation from The Savoy Cocktail Book. "This is the genuine 'Ink of Inspiration' imbibed at the Bal Bullier Paris. The recipe is from the Artists Club, Rue Pigalle, Paris."
1 oz Old Weller Antique 107 Bourbon
1 oz Dry Amontillado Sherry
.75 oz Pomegranate Syrup
.75 oz Lemon
Shake. Double strain. Coupe.
The only real wild card here is the Pomegranate Syrup / Grenadine. Avoid Torani, Monin, Rose's, etc. You can make your own. It's simple: reduce POM by half it's volume and then add an equal amount of sugar.
