Christmas Cheer

Stocking soaker
1 12 oz Becherovka
1 12 oz Pomegranate Liqueur, Pama
10 dr Bitters, Brooklyn Hemispherical Bitters Black Mission Fig
1 spl Cherry syrup (Syrup from a jar of maraschino cherries)
Shake w/ ice in a Boston mixer. Garnish with a maraschino cherry (or three).
This is a highly quaffable cocktail, with the herbals and aromatics in the Becherovka imparting a warm, luxuriant quality to the fruit flavors in the Pama and the cherries. Developed using homemade cocktail cherries, though store-bought maraschino should serve. Other bitters--especially Peychaud's, berry, and stone fruit bases--should give some interesting variations.
