cooper's regard

1 oz Rye Whiskey (Rittenhouse)
1/2 oz Cherry Heering
3/4 oz Manzanilla Sherry (Tio Pepe Fino)
1/4 oz Falernum (Velvet)
2 dash Celery Bitters (Homemade)

Build in an old fashioned glass with ice, stir to mix and chill, and garnish with a lemon twist.
Two Sundays ago, I decided to make a cocktail that one of my Instagram friends had made from Punch Drinks called the Cooper's Regard. The recipe was created circa 2016 by Caitlin Pfeiffer at Los Angeles' Break Room 86 which would place its creation around a year after I met her during our session of Camp Runamok on the Bourbon Trail in 2015. Once prepared, the Cooper's Regard donated a lemon and rye bouquet to the nose. Next, a cherry-driven sip flowed into a rye, savory, and cherry swallow.
