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.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
