This is a variation of a whiskey cocktail. It's a sipping drink and so good. Super swanky and very retro with a modern twist. It's my new favorite drink.

  • Fill a cocktail shaker with ice; pour in rye, vermouth, simple syrup, and lemon juice. Cover shaker, shake vigorously, and pour cocktail over cherries.

Cook's Notes:

I buy a bag of frozen cherries and keep them on hand to use as needed. You can use fresh cherries too.

I have also used honey-infused whiskey in exchange for the whiskey and syrup with excellent results.

These were a hit at my work Christmas party. I don't drink whiskey but the people who tasted this drink enjoyed the flavour combination. We used the Grinch kebabs on swizzle sticks to serve them. Very festive and nice drink for crowds. We used cherries in syrup instead of frozen cherries and simple syrup. Read More

This was a great blend of flavors. We used Benchmark Bourbon (our go to for mixed drinks that call for whiskey or bourbon) and luxardo cherries instead. We loved it! Just gotta remember to sip and not drink Read More
