  • Made w/ old fashion bitters. Surprisingly light on the cherry taste for a drink w/ this name. Christmas spice from the Montenegro is more salient (the subbed bitters didn't help). Garnished w/ Maraschino cherry. Seemed right. — ★★★
  • Good. A bit too sweet for my taste. Might be interesting to try with a less sweet amaro — ★★★★

Comments

Used High West Campfire as the base whiskey to bring in a little smoke.  Reduced Montenegro by 1/4 oz and added a Luxardo Maraschino cherry for garnish.  Excellent!
