I enjoyed one at Happy Hour at Trinidad's 'Purple Room' in Palm Springs recently.. the marachino cherries were real imported from Italy!

Two jiggers of Bourbon, 1 jigger of sweet vermouth, pour over ice in a cocktail shaker, shake and pour into a Manhattan/Martini glass and add a Maraschino cherry and you won't know a thing till morning. Best cocktail in history.
