1 generous lemon twist
45 ml (1.5 oz) Johnnie Walker Black Label scotch whisky
15 ml (.5 oz) Dolin Blanc vermouth
15 ml (.5 oz) Dolin Rouge vermouth
shy 15 ml (.5 oz) Luxardo maraschino liqueur
1 dash Peychaud’s bitters
1 skewered brandied cherry, as garnish
Rub the inside of a chilled coupe with the lemon twist, then discard. Stir over ice and strain into the glass. Add the garnish.
gaz sez: This one’s right up my alley. Big, strong, complex, and that one dash of Peychaud’s brings the whole darned thing to life. Great job, Scott!
