- 1 ounce whiskey
- 1/2 ounce cognac (any kind will do)
- 3/4 ounce Campari
- 3/4 ounce sweet vermouth
- lemon peel garnish
- In a pint glass, combine all ingredients except for the lemon peel. Fill the glass halfway with ice, then stir vigorously about a dozen times.
- Strain into an old-fashioned glass over a giant ice cube.
- Squeeze/twist the lemon peel over the glass to extract oils, rub the peel around the inside rim of the glass and serve with the cocktail.
If you don’t have cognac, you can make with 1 1/2 ounces of whiskey.
