Ink Street Cocktail

Ink Street

Ink Street Cocktail

1/3 Canadian Club Whisky. (3/4 oz 40 Creek Barrel Select, 1/4 oz Buffalo Trace Bourbon)
1/3 Orange Juice. (1 oz fresh valencia Orange Juice)
1/3 Lemon Juice. (1 oz fresh Lemon Juice)

Shake well then strain into cocktail glass.

Taking perfumekev’s advice to heart, I did a little on-the-fly blending, in an attempt to juice up the 40 creek.

Definitely seems to lend a bit more character in the drink, to the point where I can actually taste the whisk(e)y, which probably wouldn’t have been the case with just the 40 Creek.

In regards the drink, 3 oz is a little large. Where 2 1/4 to 2 1/2 oz would have been a bracing tonic that you could throw back in a single go, at 3 oz, the Ink Street gets a bit sour by the end.

This post is one in a series documenting my ongoing effort to make all of the cocktails in the Savoy Cocktail Book, starting at the first, Abbey, and ending at the last, Zed.
