3⁄4 oz Rum
1⁄2 oz Dry vermouth
1⁄2 oz Lemon juice

Shake, Straight Up, Cocktail


Very accessible drink, balanced, with no one flavor predominating. The subtle complex cherry flavor contrasts with the wine undertones of the vermouth and the citrus.

Sub'd left over rye/cherry juice / spices liquid used for making cocktail cherries for the Cherry Heering. Too strongly spiced. Added 1 oz of Zucca. Yummy.
