Whoa Dennis!

The origin of this bar drink is attributed to Lally Brennan and Ti Adelaide Martin (In the Land of Cocktails) with the assistance of Ted Haigh (Dr. Cocktail). The name Whoa Nellie! is an homage to Lally’s and Ti Adelaide’s grandmother, Nellie Valentine. I recently tweaked the libation replacing the more usual American Rye Whisky in the serving with Alberta Premium Canadian Rye Whisky. This tweak was in response to my buddy Dennis’ wedding as I was in charge of arranging the signature cocktails. For that occasion, I allowed Dennis’ bride Ally, to rename the cocktail, Whoa Dennis!

Whoa Nellie SAM_2398Whoa Dennis!

1 1/2 oz Rye Whiskey (Alberta Premium 100% Rye)
1/2 oz Dark Rum (Coruba Dark Jamaican Rum)
1/2 oz Orange Liqueur (Cointreau)
1/3 oz Grapefruit Juice
1/3 oz Lemon Juice
a few dashes of Bitters (Fees Cocktail Bitters)
1/3 oz Sugar Syrup
Ice
Grapefruit Twist

Add the ingredients into a metal shaker with plenty of ice
Shake until the outside of the shaker begins to frost
Strain into a cocktail glass
Garnish with a twist of Grapefruit

Please Enjoy Responsibly!
