Also known as the "James Joyce Cocktail" if you use Irish Whiskey, this cocktail recipe was (as legend has it) given to a doctor on the creator's near-death-bed as thanks for saving his live (http://voices.washingtonpost.com/all-we-can-eat/spirits/cocktail...). Regardless, it's a fantastic spring "bridge season" cocktail, updating your winter Manhattans and moving them to brighter flavors.
