  • 3 ounces High Proof Whiskey
  • 3/4 ounce Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
  • 2 Dashes Angostura Bitters
  • 1 Twist Citrus Peel I used and prefer orange, but lemon would probably work equally well. If you want a sweeter cocktail, you can use a maraschino cherry in place of the twist.


  • Add ice to a large shaker.
  • Add whiskey and Luxardo and bitters.
  • Stir for 40-50 revolutions.
  • Strain into a coupe glass.
  • Garnish with a twist, and serve.
