Manhattan-like structure but in need of a pick-me-up. Chose bourbon over rye for a slightly sweeter edge to balance the Noilly. Aphrodite Bitters because they are ace with anything vaguely coffee/chocolate like (and more else besides).
15ml Noilly Prat French Vermouth
15ml strong slightly sweetened espresso
Generous dash Dr Adam Elmegirab's Aphrodite Bitters
Bourbon infused cherry
Stir first four ingredients vigorously over ice, strain into a chilled receptacle of your choice, add the cherry and sip wistfully.
