Recipe by Alan in SW Florida
This is the cocktail for all of you who aren't martini drinkers. The addition of just a little cherry juice makes for a very smooth drink.
- 2 ounces Bourbon (use a good quality, such as Maker's Mark)
- 3⁄4-1 ounce sweet vermouth, depending on taste
- 2 -3 dashes Angostura bitters (or orange bitters, if you can find them)
- 1 teaspoon cherry juice (from the jar of maraschino cherries)
- 1 maraschino cherry, preferably on its stem
