It’s 6pm on Sunday and it’s time to have a cocktail. Something to wind you down so you can be fresh for the new week— or make your long neglected pile of laundry more fun to sort though while you desperately try to figure out how to dress yourself like an adult.
Grab a rocks glass, or something else short and wide. Find an Orange and your vegetable peeler, shave off a 1in wide strip of Zest, rub it around the lip of your glass, and throw it in. Shake in 2 dashes of Orange BItters, a splash of Campari, a bigger splash of Sweet Vermouth and 2 fingers of Bourbon or Rye. Vigorously stir with 1 big Ice Cube or a couple small ones. Drop in a Luxardo Cherry, and leave the jar close by for snacking.
