Comments

The "Rubescent Glow" is, in my opinion, a great drink. I used Baker's 7 year (107 proof) for the bourbon. The cocktail is well-balanced, and if sipped slowly, you'll enjoy multiple overtones from all of the ingredients, including both cherry notes. Don't hesitate to make this drink. It will surely end up on your list of favorite cocktails. Sip and enjoy! I rated this drink at 4.5.
