½ oz bourbon
¾ oz sweet vermouth
a dash Angostura bitters
3-4 ice cubes
Maraschino cherry or two
twist of orange peel
1. Combine the vermouth, bourbon, bitters and ice in a mixing glass Stir gently, don't bruise the spirits and cloud the drink.
2. Place the cherry in a chilled cocktail glass and strain the bourbon mixture over the cherry.
3. Rub the cut edge of an orange peel over the rim of the glass and twist it over the drink to release the oils, but don't drop it in.
