As adopted in the Big Bartender's Book from Johnny Brooks My 35 Years Behind the Bar from 1954.


2 ounces (60 ml) rye
2/3 ounce (20 ml) orange curacao
2 dashes Angostura bitters
6 cloves

Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.

The Templeton rye really wowed me in this recipe, (Wild Turkey rye is good here too.) 

The cloves work, they just really work. A very well balanced drink, my hat's off to Johnny for this one!
