Singapore Cocktail

I was looking through Internet Cocktail database for a drink that looked interesting but that wouldn't overwhelm any Canadian whiskey I used in it.  Thus, no sweet vermouth or grenadine.

I decided on one called a Singpore Cocktail:

1 1/2 oz Canadian whiskey (using Canadian Club Classic 12)
1/2 oz lemon juice
1/4 oz Rose's
1/4 oz Sloe gin (you didn't see that coming, I bet)

Give these a whirl in a shaker and strain.  How do you dole out 1/4 oz?  I used a half tablespoon spoon.

The sloe gin gives it a pink color, of course.  (Where the name "Singapore Cocktail" comes from apparently.)  Not a bad cocktail, but with 3/4 oz citrus it was tad too citrusy.  Cutting the lemon juice in half would be a good start.  You could also switch the lemon juice and Rose's proportions, but that would probably make it too sweet (at least for me).
