Necessity can often be a wonderful inspiration. David Wondrich created this drink several years ago when he wanted to bring a bottle of pre-mixed Manhattans to a gathering of friends on Halloween. But his liquor cabinet was missing a few critical ingredients. Using what was at hand, he crafted a drink which focused on Jameson and Lillet, and the “Weeski” was born.

Weeski Cocktail

60 ml (2 oz) Irish Whiskey
30 ml (1 oz) Lillet Blanc
8 ml (1/4 oz) Cointreau
2 dashes The Bitter Truth Orange Bitters

Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
