Personal Notes:
This drink has greased the wheels of many a good family gathering. Thanks Aunt Ta!
Suggestions:
Use a good inexpensive Kentucky Bourbon, save the expensive stuff for sipping. Make your own simple syrup, the bottled stuff is too sweet. Be careful with the Angostura bitters, one extra drop can ruin the drink. Use the maraschino cherry juice that comes with the cherries, it tastes better than the bottled stuff.
