3/4 oz. dry vermouth
3/4 oz. vermouth rosso
Dash of maraschino liqueur
Dash of orange bitters
Stir well with ice in a mixing glass. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Twist lemon peel over drink and drop into the glass. Garish with the cherry.
Dolin dry vermouth, Carpano Antica vermouth rosso, Luxardo maraschino liqueur. This is a pretty typical vermouth cocktail. Bright fruit notes, a slight bitterness, and a great citrus nose from the lemon peel. The drink came out a little short, even in a small glass, so a double would not have been amiss.
