2oz Irish Whiskey
.5oz Dry Vermouth
Add the Irish whiskey, dry vermouth and Benedictine to a chilled mixing glass. Add ice and stir until well chilled. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with the Orange twist.
Airy, light citrus nose. Smooth whiskey flavor up front with whisps of smoke. Mild dryness, honey sweet accents and a quick finish. Refreshing and lighter than you might expect.
Brainstorm is another classic credited to Hugo Ensslin, creator of the Aviation and Chrysanthemum, published among many other classics in his Recipes for Mix Drinks (1916).
