This is my favorite cocktail!! I asked the bartender at a restaurant for their recipe because it was so perfect. By the way, he specifically told me to stir 25 times LOL! Hey, if it ain't broke.....Enjoy!!

Also, I know the Luxardo cherries are pricey but they last a long time and there is absolutely NO substitute for them! You can find them at Meijer or nice liquor store...but not in Florida??? WTH!
