Original recipe is a shot and calls for equal parts cherry liqueur, amaretto and bourbon. This renders an exceedingly sweet shot / drink, like many shots lean toward. However, amending the recipe creates a lovely on the rocks sipping drink. Ideal for a “candied” Halloween shot or drink. Would also be great for Girl’s Night Out.American Belle 016 copyright Cheri Loughlin
