  • Made with Crown Royal rye, Tattersall sour cherry. Real cherry flavor most predominant. — ☆☆☆
  • Quite good. Made with Carpano Antica. 2nd time used Cocchi and Leopold cherry. I think less sweet. Not sure which I prefer, maybe the original. Garnish with a cherry instead of orange peel. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Luxardo cherry, martini rosso, Canadian club rye — ☆☆☆☆

In this case, the black dog is me. And tonight I'm running back to the kitchen to make another!

This is very good. I think

This is very good. I think this will be a go to drink this fall. 

For a variation I subbed a coffee liqueur I made for the Cynar. Kind of a Twin Peaks mash-up with the Dale Cooper. Not bad.

Made with Canadian Club rye,

Made with Canadian Club rye, Luxardo Sangue Morlacco, Martini Rosso, and Angostura orange bitters.  Really delicious.  Orange peel garnish, IMO, definitely preferable to cherry (add too much sweetness).  Could use a 90-100 proof rye instead of 80.
