The Mickey Spillane
After many failed experiments over the course of several weeks, during which I selflessly followed the path set by Edward Jenner and used myself as a guinea pig, I have finally perfected my homemade cocktail recipe (which is a variation on the Old Fashioned and Manhattan whiskey-based cocktails). In the spirit of friendship and altruism that is common to all alcoholics, I have decided to make the world a better place and share it here so that everyone may enjoy it
Due to the combination of Italian liqueurs and Irish whisky, I decided to call this The Mickey Spillane (after the Hell's Kitchen mobster, not the novelist).
Substitutions, if you are in a pinch:
If you don't have Tullamore Dew, use Powers or Bushmills
If you don't have Punt e Mes, use Martini e Rossi red vermouth
If you don't have Aperol, use Campari
