Imbibing Mr. Boston: Canadian Cherry Cocktail


Sigh… yet another let down of a cocktail.  I wasn’t expecting much from this one anyway, but everything is out of balance here.  I have a feeling that maraschino liqueur is not what is called for, but rather maraschino syrup.  Even with the amount of orange juice, it was not enough to offset the tang of the lemon juice.  Using maraschino liqueur just made it seem like something cobbled together from the end of the night by emptying all half-finished cocktails into one glass.

Not to mention, how do you rim a glass with maraschino liqueur?  Gah!

Canadian Cherry
1.5 oz Canadian whiskey
0.5 oz maraschino liqueur
0.5 oz lemon juice
0.5 oz orange juice

Moisten rim of old-fashioned glass with maraschino liqueur. Fill with ice. Shake ingredients with ice and strain into glass.
