Squeeze orange and lemon juices into shaker. Add Curacao, Apricot liqueur, Rye. and bitters. Stir and taste for sweetness. Add grenadine to taste. Shake with ice and strain into cocktail glass. Garnish with orange slice and cherry.


I often use 1 oz. Redemption and 3 oz. Old Overholt. For oranges I love Sicilian Taroccos (bought at Costcos); but they seem to be seasonally available. Same with Moro oranges. Otherwise, any juice type orange.
For Apricot Liqueur you can use Marie Brizard Apry. If so, add a little less since it's sweeter. Drink is plenty sweet already. Update 6/22- Tried this with just Bulliet; much better.

TrinSF commented on 3/01/2021:

Was making this for two and so I doubled it, not reading closely -- then I was like "8 oz rye what what?" and that's how I made an epic amount of this for two people. I might suggest editing the recipe to be for a single drink -- the "makes two" wasn't clear in the mobile app.
