1 oz luxardo maraschino
1 oz chartreuse
1 oz lemon juice

A classic example of a simplified cocktail. A quick pour of bourbon, a splash of luxardo, drop in a few ice cubes, and you’re ready to relax. This is a fresh, simple take on the old fashioned from The Back Door at Roxy’s.

2 oz bourbon or whiskey
¼ oz luxardo maraschino
orange peel
cherry

Combine in shaker over ice, and strain into cocktail glass. Spritz orange peel over glass. Garnish with cherry.

A friend made this for me, with creme de violette. But it doesn’t really need it. Simplify!
