fancy free

2oz Bourbon
1/2oz Maraschino
1-2 dashes Angostura bitters
1-2 dashes orange bitters

Stir, strain. Garnish with a cherry. Source: Chuck Taggart

I skipped the garnish, as my cherries are not here yet. Apparently the wildfires in Calif. have delayed the shipment... And I'm quite happy that that is the least of my fire-related problems.

Very tasty drink. Buzzy upon first sip, and then extremely smooth and interesting to imbibe. Husband put in a request for a Bourbon-based nightcap (he feels a bit guilty for the bottle of Maker's getting passed over for his new friend, Rye), and I found this one.
