Meat Hook

Description
Red Hook variation from L'abattoir bar in Vancouver
Instructions
Build in a mixing glass, add ice, stir until well chilled. Strain into a sour glass or coupe, garnish with a brandied cherry.
Notes
Any spicy rye will suit this drink - Rittenhouse Bottled-in-Bond goes well, as does Wild Turkey 101. The Punt e Mes can be substituted for any sweet vermouth, preferably one on the bitter side (e.g. Carpano Antica Fomula). Ardbeg is optimal, but a different smoky Islay single malt (e.g. Laphroaig) will serve.
History
A variation of the Red Hook, designed to complement the meat-heavy menu served at the restaurant.
