1   Cherry (As garnish)
Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a cherry.
Recently, I thought about the Cognac-apple brandy combination of the Corpse Reviver No. 1 from the Savoy Cocktail Book and wondered what I could do with it. Two years ago, I was pushed to take the uninspiring split spirit Manhattan of sorts without bitters and provide it some pizzazz by giving it the Vieux Carré treatment to concoct the Corpse Carré. Here, I wondered how these spirits would do in the Campari-laden Hand series created at Sasha Petraske's Milk & Honey in New York City.
