2 oz Bourbon
12 oz Pedro Ximénez Sherry
2 ds Bitters, Bittermens Xocolatl Mole
1   Brandied cherry (as garnish)
Instructions
Combine ingredients in an Old Fashioned glass. Add big ice and stir. Drop the cherry on top.
Notes
Most sources just say 'brandied cherry', but cocktail virgin/slut specifies Maraschino.
From other users
  • Too sweet. 1/4oz or 2tsp PX sherry would taste better for me. Plus i made a mistake and used fee brother barrel-aged bitter... must try it again. — ☆☆☆
