Ken Burns Effect

Cocktail consultant Erick Castro came up with the Ken Burns Effect as a riff on the classic Manhattan formula, with sweet sherry in place of sweet vermouth.

Castro uses Dry Sack sherry, which is a blend of Oloroso and Pedro Ximenéz sherries. You can use any sweet, dark sherry you have on hand.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
