what you'll need

  • 3/4 ounces sweet vermouth
  • 2 1/2 ounces blended whiskey
  • 1 dash bitters
  • 1 maraschino cherry
  • 1 twist orange

how to prepare it

Combine the vermouth, whiskey, bitters and ice in a cocktail glass. Stir gently without bruising the spirits. Place the cherry in a chilled cocktail glass and strain the whiskey mixture over the cherry. Rub the cut edge of the orange peel over the rim of the glass and twist it over the drink to release oils but don't drop it in. Pour over ice in a cocktail glass, or for a variation shake with ice and pour straight up in a martini glass.
