The classic usually calls for a blended or rye whiskey, but I prefer it with bourbon.
- 2.5 oz Maker's Mark bourbon or high quality/call bourbon
- 1/2 oz sweet vermouth
- 2-3 dashes of Angostura bitters
Prep - Fill a mixing glass with ice halfway. Add ingredients. Stir gently for about 20 seconds each direction. Strain using a Julep Strainer into a chilled cocktail glass or coupe. Garnish A stemmed cherry or lemon twist.
