1 oz Cognac
1 oz Madeira
3 Maraschino cherry (One each: red, white and green)
Instructions

Stir serve and serve up.

Notes

Ok, it's easy to get red maraschino cherries, and I remember seeing green around Xmas (at least in my childhood) but I nor anyone at the bar can remember ever seeing a white one.

History

Apparently this drink is a true hazard to keeping a 'consistent maidenhood' so ladies beware!
