I just invented my own cocktail which I dub, "the Gillman". It is:
- 2 ounces fine straight whiskey of any kind (I use my own personal blend of bourbons)
- 3/4 ounce Grenadine syrup (Rose's)
- one-half thick slice lemon over which I ran a serrated knife to release the juice and aroma
- two drops orange bitters
- good splash Perrier water
- two ice cubes, then stir with swizzler.
A nice rich-but-light summer refresher.
