The Mon Cherry
A light "Manhattan-like" cocktail, on the sweet side of dry. Rittenhouse rye is also very good in this drink, making for an even drier and "nuttier" version.
"the Lab" presents the "Mon Cherry"
(Please pardon my penchant for punny names.)
2 oz (60 ml) Four Roses small batch bourbon.
1/2 oz (15 ml) Plymouth sloe gin.
1/4 oz (7.5 ml) Maraschino liqueur.
1/4 oz (7.5 ml) Mozart Dry Chocolate Liquor. (yes liquor, it's a base spirit and not a liqueur)
1 Luxardo Maraschino cherry.
1 dash orange bitters
Stir and strain into a cocktail glass over one Luxardo cherry. Add one dash of orange bitters over top of the strained drink.
