.5oz Luxardo Maraschino
1 Dash Angostura Bitters
1 Dash Orange Bitters
Add all ingredients except the twist to a mixing glass. Add ice and stir. Strain into a chilled coupe. Garnish with the orange twist.
The Fancy Free is another classic cocktail, a Manhattan variant of sorts. The Luxardo Maraschino adds a lighter sweeter taste while the addition of orange flavors is another great feature. This one is reminiscent of a chilled Gran Marnier, that is less sweet and some how tastes both lighter and heavier in different ways due to the added complexity. For fans of the Manhattan, Martinez and Red Hook.
I can’t seem to find anything in regards to the history or origins of this one. If I manage to turn something up, it will be posted here.
