Servings 1


  • 1 ounce blended Scotch whisky
  • 1 ounce sweet red vermouth
  • 1 ounce cherry liqueur not kirsch--think cherry brandy
  • 1 ounce orange juice fresh is nice, but not necessary


  • Chill a martini glass, coupe, or rocks glass.
  • Add the whisky, vermouth, cherry liqueur, and orange juice to a cocktail shaker full of ice, cover, and shake for 15 seconds.
  • Strain into the chilled glass and enjoy.
  • Multiply as necessary


You can garnish with an orange peel, orange slice, or a maraschino cherry...but no points will be taken off for serving it simply.
