2 oz Rye
1 oz Maple liqueur, Sapling
1⁄4 oz Fernet Branca
1⁄4 oz Grenadine
1 ? Maraschino cherry, Luxardo

Stir, strain, straight up, cocktail or coupe, garnish with cherry


An excellent way to use an excellent ingredient, Sapling Maple Liquer.

Original recipe asks for Pikesville rye, but I've been using Bulleit.

Grenadine must be homemade or high quality.

Cherry can be homemade or alternate brand with the same quality as Luxardo


This recipe was found on the Wonderland Kitchen blog, which promotes it as an autumn cocktail (due to the maple liquer) but I have found it equally delicious during winter, spring, or summer
