A Mother of a Cocktail

Needed something to put me at ease after a day spent at the ball park. A Cardinal’s loss and two burnt knees later, I needed a drink.

Went with an improved cocktail.

It being an all booze drink, I of course stirred it, didn’t want to bruise the booze. I decided to serve myself the drink with a two inch ice cube, in a short single old fashioned, with a cherry on top.

For the spirit I chose the Trybox Series Rye, which is unaged Rittenhouse, clocking in at 125 proof. For the liqueur I went with Maraschino. For the bitters I chose Bitters, Old Men Gangsta Lee’n Bitters. They’re a smokey bacon bitters. Tossed a house cherry in to finish.

I ended up with a strong, complex, sweet, not just improved, but perfect, cocktail. Just like my mom.
