Ever get a new bottle of a liqueur and immediately start figuring out all the different ways you could use it? I felt that way when i finally purchased a bottle of Cherry Herring, and knew I wanted to combine chocolate and cherries.
it's near Valentine's Day, so it's perfect for this season, and it works with romantic evenings out or time with the girls around Valentines.
1.5 oz Old Forester 86
1 oz Ballotin Bourbon Ball
0.5 oz Cherry Herring
2 dashes cherry vanilla bark bitters
Garnish - cherry! Of course! and a dash of fresh grated nutmeg if you have it
Combine ingredients in a mixing glass and stir until well-chilled. Strain into a small chilled glass and garnish with your cherry and a small dash of fresh-grated nutmeg in the back.
