Somewhere in between an Old Fashioned and a Manhattan lies this concoction, which I refer to as She Likes it That Way. While on occasion, you may be able to skip the orange peel & bitters, the two cherries are non-negotiable. Because she likes it that way.
- 1.5 oz. bourbon
- 0.75 oz. sweet vermouth
- 0.75 oz. Luxardo maraschino liquor
- 3 dashes of Angostura bitters
- sprinkle of Sugar in the Raw
- orange peel
- 2 maraschino cherries
Drop an orange peel skin side down into an old fashioned glass. Sprinkle the raw sugar and bitters and muddle into the peel. In a mixing glass or tin, stir the bourbon, vermouth and Luxardo with ice. Put an oversized ice cube into the serving glass and strain the chilled liquid over the frosty cube. Garnish with an orange peel and two cherries.
