Here's what you'll need.
Whiskey. Use good stuff like Crown Royal. Something you would drink straight.
Sweet Vermouth. Make sure it's freshly opened or less than a month old.
Step 1: Load the Shaker!
Add plenty of Whiskey. Be sure to watch the video below for helpful tips.
The Vermouth takes the hard edge off the Whiskey. Add just enough to take the bite away.
The Bitters take the sweet off the Vermouth. Add just enough to dry it out to your liking.
Shake it up!
