Best Man

Ingredients:

old fashioned glass with hand carved ice sphere
• 1  1/4 oz. Bourbon
• 1/2 oz. Rye
• 1/2  oz. Sweet Vermouth
• bar spoon amaro
• bar spoon dry maraschino liqueur
• 1 dash Angostura bitters
• 2 dashes PLDFC house-made orange bitters

Directions: Stir & strain, garnish with orange peel and 3 brandied cherries on metal skewer.

(Paula LeDuc Fine Catering uses a house-made orange bitters, but mixing the commercially available Regan’s Orange Bitters and Angostura Orange Bitters in equal parts is a fantastic alternative.)
