Ken Burns Effect

Ken Burns Effect cocktail with rye whiskey and sweet sherry

Cocktail consultant Erick Castro came up with the Ken Burns Effect as a riff on the classic Manhattan formula, with sweet sherry and marachino 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.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
