3/4 oz Sweet Vermouth
2 1/2 oz Bourbon
dash Angostura bitters
2 or 3 Ice cubes
1 Maraschino Cherry
1 twist of Orange peel

Combine the vermouth, whiskey, bitters and ice in a mixing glass. Stir gently, don't bruise the spirits and cloud the drink. Place the cherry in a chilled cocktail glass and strain the whiskey mixture over the cherry. Rub the cut edge of the orange peel over the rim of the glass and twist it over the drink to release the oils but don't drop it in.
