2 oz Bourbon
1 oz Sweet vermouth, Carpano Antica Formula (No substitutions)
1⁄2 oz Simple syrup
1⁄2 oz Egg white (Half an egg white)
1 ? Maraschino cherry, Luxardo (No substitutions)

Pre-chill a coupe. Dry shake then wet shake all ingredients, strain into coupe and garnish with Luxardo Maraschino cherry


I used Jefferson Ocean Voyage no.5 small batch Bourbon, as the salty notes compliment the Carpano. However, Buffalo Trace will suffice.
