I don't remember how this drink came to be known in The Dandy Branch, it was in the original Italian Leather Bound Book of Cocktails Erik and I created back in 2011. We probably found it on the 12 Bottle Bar website. Our original source for basic cocktails and bar building.
1 1/2 oz Rye Whiskey
1 oz Dry Vermouth
3/4 oz lemon juice
3/4 oz grenadine
Shake and strain, garnish with a lemon twist
