Everybody Loves Hugo

1 12 oz Rye
12 oz Ancho Reyes Ancho Chile Liqueur
12 oz Crème de Cacao
12 oz Sweet vermouth, Carpano Punt e Mes
1 t Cherry syrup (scant; see note)
1   Cherry, Luxardo (garnish)
Up: chilled coupe. Stir, strain, garnish.
I use a store-bought sour cherry syrup, but syrup from a Luxardo, Amarena, or other non-neon cherry jar should suffice. For a drier version, swap in a dash of cherry bitters.
