Friday Cocktail: The Fancy-Free Cocktail

The Fancy-Free Cocktail
Looking forward to two events tonight: the open show, and Red Stick Ramblers (more on these in a separate post). The open show led to the suggestion that I select an open type cocktail and the Ramblers put me in a cajuny mood, so I went to the gumbopages and scoured their recipes. They have tons of great sounding recipes with history and stories. Just have to find the Maraschino liqueur and orange bitters and I'm pretty sure I'll be pleased with the Fancy-Free Cocktail:

-2oz Bourbon
-1/2oz Maraschino liqueur
-dash or two Angostura bitters
-dash or two orange bitters

Shake with cracked ice and strain into chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a Maraschino cherry.
