2 14ozBrandy
12ozOrange cordial
1bspCherry Liqueur, Sangue Morlacco
1 Cherry, Luxardo (muddled)
2dsBitters (1 dash aromatic, 1 dash cherry bitters)
Muddle cherry in liquid ingredients, shake, double strain over cracked ice, garnish with two more brandied cherries on a pick with an orange flag.
To make an orange cordial: peel a large orange and combine the peels in a small bowl with 1/2 cup of sugar. Cover and let macerate overnight, occasionally stirring. Stir in the juice from the orange. Strain liquid off the peels and bottle.
A craftish take on the cherry smash known in Wisconsin as a Brandy Old Fashioned. A barspoon of Ramazzotti works here too.
