Hazardous ingredients

This recipe contains a number of ingredients that are potentially hazardous to those with allergy or intolerance:

Review:

Balanced sweet and sour with bourbon to the fore. Some, including my hero David Embury, stipulate making this cocktail with a straight rye whiskey. However, having tried rye against bourbon in this cocktail and I prefer the richness of a wheat-rich bourbon over a spicy rye.

History:

Adapted from a recipe in David A. Embury's 1948 The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks.
