Beware the name, but more wary of the high proof on this classic cocktail. Old Fitzgerald Bourbon is 100 proof but tasted great in this bourbon recipe. Deadly Sin contains nice mellow orange tones with quite a bit of vermouth shine through. It is not too sweet. The flavorful bourbon as base spirit runs deep in this sipping cocktail. The colorful glow reminds me of a beautiful sunset just before it fades. Just as one would sit leisurely and enjoy a glorious sunset, relax and take in the full pleasure of Deadly Sin in a laid-back, easy going manner.
