This drink is a strong one. Eh, or maybe it's just strong for my taste. I actually added a little bit of the maraschino cherry juice to sweeten it up a bit.
2 ounces rye, bourbon, or blended Canadian Whiskey
3/4 ounce sweet vermouth
2 to 3 dashes bitters
Stir the ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with cherry.
