I had to go restock the liquor cabinet (imagine that!) and picked up Cherry Brandy and Coffee Brandy. It seemed as if I saw tons of recipes calling for these and I was tired of skipping all of them. Plus, I like cherry and coffee flavors.
Naturally, I got home, sat down with Mr. Boston's Official Bartender's Guide and had a heckuva a time finding any of those cocktails.
Eventually, after due diligence, I dug up some interesting prospects.
The first we tried was Cherie which was quite delicious. And it had a maraschino cherry. Which was perfect because we were watching Some Like It Hot.
Don't see the connection? Pick up the movie and watch for Tony Curtis on the train.
1 oz. Lime Juice
1/2 oz. Triple Sec
1 oz. Light Rum
