1 Filthy Food Black Cherry, as garnish

Stir over ice and strain into a chilled coupe.  Add the garnish.

gaz sez:  This baby won the 2014 Bärenjäger Honey Liqueur cocktail competition, and on my score sheets—I was one of five judges—she won it by a wide margin.  This drink rocks.  It’s got flavor to burn, it ain’t too sweet, and it’s got so much depth you could drown in a thimbleful of the stuff.  Megan: This was pure genius.
