About this Cocktail

This is an original from The Straight Up (drinkstraightup.com) and is sure to warm you up on a cold night.

Notes:
All cherry and whiskey on the nose. The higher proof Russell’s Single Barrel works well in this one, standing up to the sweeter cherry flavors. A bouquet of cherry flavor is accented by the caramel and herbal contrast of the Averna. The finish bitters up a bit. This one is heavy and sweet, making for a great after dinner sipper.

Ingredients:
  • 1.oz Russell’s Reserve Single Barrel (or other high proof bourbon)
  • .5oz Amaro Averna
  • .25oz Cherry Heering
  • 1brspn Maraschino
  • Dash Rhubarb bitters
  • Luxardo Cherries
Preparation:

Add the Russell’s Reserve Single Barrel (or other high-proof bourbon), Amaro Averna, Cherry Heering, Maraschino and Rhubarb bitters to a chilled mixing glass. Add ice and stir until well chilled. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with the cherries.

    Finally got around to trying this... So good! The trick for me was getting just the right balance with the Maraschino and the Bourbon. I had to go just over a barspoon to make it work with Knob Creek. Thanks for sharing Nick.
