Cocktail Opening is one of my favorite whisky-based drink. This sweet and aromatic cocktail work well before club-night (jazz-club of course!).
30 ml rye (or canadian whisky)
2 tsp sweet vermouth
2 tsp grenadine
Shake (or stir). Serve in old-fashioned glass with a lot of ice.
Usually I use Canadian Club for this cocktail. Second key-stuff of this drink is homemade grenadine (cold-process) for perfect results.
