I am a big fan of the cocktail. A group of friends have ressurected the "big family Sunday dinner", where we get together with extended family and friends (whoever is available). Many times at these get-togethers we have a signature drink, usually seasonal, so I am always on the lookout for something new. This article was very informative regarding the difference between shaken and stirred cocktails. Had to go on line to get the orange bitters, but we both agreed it was worth it. Now I am going to try and come up with some other interesting ways to use the maraschino cherry liquor, maybe something in honor of George Washington's birthday, MMMMMM, I am sure I can come up with something, any suggestions from my fellow cooks?
