Review:

This variation on the 'Straight' Satan's Whiskers is made curly by the use of orange curaçao liqueur. It seems strangely counter-intuitive as you'd think the slightly richer Grand Marnier would be what made it curly.

History:

Adapted from a recipe in Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book. (A variation on the classic Bronx.)

SATAN'S WHISKERS COCKTAIL. (Straight)
Of Italian Vermouth, French Vermouth, Gin and Orange Juice, two parts each; of Grand Marnier one part; Orange Bitters, a dash.
Shake well and strain into chilled glass.

SATAN'S WHISKERS COCKTAIL. (Curled)
For the Grand Marnier in the foregoing Cocktail, substitute the same quantity of Orange Curaçao.
Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.

Harry Craddock, 1930
