History:

Adapted from a recipe created in 2011 by Sierra Zimei, cocktail director at Seasons Bar and Lounge in the Four Seasons Hotel in San Francisco, USA. This cocktail's notoriety was helped by its being included in Gary "gaz" Regan's 101 Best New Cocktails of 2011. Originally made with 60ml rye whiskey, 22.5ml maraschino liqueur, and 15ml lemon juice, but given the name, Tennessee whiskey seemed more appropriate. And, I should add, I've played with the proportions.
