the Classic cocktail formula: 2 parts Strong + 1 part Sweet + 1 part Sour
Right now I'm drinking 2 shots brandy, 1 shot lemon juice, 1 shot sloe gin.
If you serve it like a martini with an olive... I've had better. Next round I'll swap something else for the sloe gin.
2 shots brandy, 1 shot line juice, 1 shot triple-sec is a side car. This is the king of the cocktails.
