A sophisticated, classic cocktail recipe of bourbon, sweet red vermouth and orange zest that’s sure to jazz up any dinner party.

Ingredients

  • 360ml bourbon whiskey (we like Buffalo Trace)
  • 100ml sweet red vermouth
  • 6 shakes of Angostura bitters
  • 6 pared, strips of orange zest
  • Maraschino cherries

Method

  1. Mix the bourbon whiskey in a jug with the vermouth and Angostura bitters. Chill until needed (up to 24 hours).
  2.  For each strip of orange, run the outer side round the rim of a low-ball or small wine glass, then put the strip inside the glass with a maraschino cherry.
  3. To serve, add as much ice as you can to the jug, stir to combine for 30-40 seconds, then strain into the 6 prepared glasses.
