Review:

Your choice of whisky and bitters (I use Bob's Abbotts) will make or break this potentially brilliant whisky sour. Maple syrup should be in more sours.

History:

Adapted from a recipe in Ted Saucier's 1951 Bottom's Up where this cocktail is credited to Larry Denis, Head Bartender at the Seigniory Club, The Log Chateau, Quebec, Canada.
