Creole Contentment

1ozMadeira
1ozMaraschino Liqueur
1dsOrange bitters
3 Maraschino cherry (One each: red, white and green)
Instructions
Stir serve and serve up.
Notes
Ok, it's easy to get red maraschino cherries, and I remember seeing green around Xmas (at least in my childhood) but I nor anyone at the bar can remember ever seeing a white one.
History
Apparently this drink is a true hazard to keeping a 'consistent maidenhood' so ladies beware!
Cocktail summary
Yield
Drink
Created byBaker got this New Orleans drink recipe from an Episcopal Bishop of Washington, who wrote books about pirates. To my best guess this would have been James E. Freeman (DC's Bishop 1923-1943)
