  1. Fill the shaker with the whiskey, vermouth and bitter. Mix everything very carefully. It will take about 30 seconds.
  2. Strain the liquid into the cold glass.
  3. Decorate the portion with the cocktail cherry.

As its’ve been said, in the traditional recipe Italian vermouth is used. Classical choice is Cinzano Antica Formula or Pregiato Antica Formula. French vermouth is definitely dryer. But it`s still tasty. If you so not like your cocktails to be too sweet, choose light French Dolin Rouge.

Experiment with the classical cocktail recipe and enjoy each party!
