Ingredients

  • 2 ounces bourbon
  • 1/2 ounce Cointreau*
  • 1/2 ounce sweet vermouth**
  • 1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 ounce cherry juice***
  • 2 Luxardo, Brandied, or Amarena Cherries for garnish

Instructions

  • Combine all liquid ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Add ice, and stir with bar spoon until very chilled, about 30 seconds.
  • Add a large sphere or square ice cube to an old fashioned glass. Strain the cocktail over the ice, then garnish with two cherries. Alternatively, strain the cocktail into a chilled coupe glass without ice, and garnish with two cherries.

Notes

*Triple sec can be used in place of Cointreau
**I recommend Carpano Antica, but there are a lot of really cool boutique sweet vermouths that would also be delicious.  Really, any sweet vermouth will work.
***Luxardo Cherry Juice (NOT the bright red cherries. See the notes in the post about this.)  Brandied cherries (and juice) or Amarena cherries (and juice) will also work
