The International Cocktail tastes similar to a Manhattan, but softer with its exchange for the usual lush vermouth. Orange gives this cocktail very nice aroma. Might be terrific with stronger whiskey. Has slight green banana faintness in the taste. More of a watered down Manhattan rather than rich, lush, gregarious version. Perfect perhaps for the gentleman or lady on a sophisticated evening out.
2 ounces Gentleman Jack Tennessee Whiskey
1 ounce Dry Sack Sherry
2 dashes Classic Bitters
Orange Peel Garnish
Combine liquids in mixing glass with ice. Stir to chill. Strain into martini glass. Garnish with flamed orange twist. May also serve the International Cocktail in rocks glass over fresh ice.
