Large format room-temp pre-Prohibition whiskey drink.
|2||Maraschino cherry (as garnish)|
Shake, strain into a claret glass, garnish.
Later versions corrupt the maraschino component into grenadine, which makes for an entirely different (and inferior, I think) drink.

- I quartered the (2:2:1 originally posted) recipe and was satisfied with the volume! This was better than I expected. At room temp, pleasant cherry acidity.
- More pleasurable than it seemed at first, clearly meant as a sippable drink rather than a quick cocktail. It is a good way to use Madeira.
