Marilyn Monroe certainly had a bright idea when her and co-stars found a bottle of bourbon and some vermouth in Some Like it Hot in 1959. While the characters in the movie went the bourbon route based on what was available to them, we prefer to use Rye Whiskey and a few other ingredients. Make no mistake, any version of this cocktail would still get “the party started” in Upper 7.
