This is another variation of the more popular drink "Manhattan" an just as its name (inspired by the famous circus elephant) once you've got the taste of it, you become quite playful.
30ml Rye Whiskey
45ml French Vermouth
20ml Italian Vermouth
1/4 teaspoon peychaud's bitters
Add all ingredient's & cracked ice into a mixing glass. Stir well for 30 seconds or more, then strain into a small martini glass. Garnish with a lemon twist or a maraschino cherry. Pemberton calls for equal parts whiskey, french vermouth, italian vermouth and no bitters or garnish. This way is better; if you don't have peychaud's bitters use angostura bitters.
