McKittrick Old Fashioned

2 oz Bourbon
12 oz Pedro Ximénez Sherry
2 ds Bitters, Bittermens Xocolatl Mole
1   Brandied cherry (as garnish)
Combine ingredients in an Old Fashioned glass. Add big ice and stir. Drop the cherry on top.
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. — ☆☆☆
