Review:

I can imagine Winnie sipping one of these accompanied by a fat cigar. This Churchillian is as formidable as its namesake and you may prefer it tamed with a few ice cubes rather than served Sazerac-style, as its creator intended.

History:

Adapted from a recipe created in 2021 by Jason E. Clapham at the St. Edward's MCR at Oxford, England. Jason says, "What would you serve Winston Churchill, who wasn't a fan of cocktails? This might just persuade him. He drank (diluted) Johnnie Walker all day, enjoyed cognac after supper, and disliked vermouth." Appropriately, Jason specifies Johnnie Walker Black Label scotch whisky in his recipe.

Nutrition:

One serving of Churchillian contains 196 calories.

Alcohol content:

  • 2 standard drinks
  • 33% alc./vol. (66° proof)
  • 27.6 grams of pure alcohol
