This classic cocktail can make even the couth-less, classy:
1 jigger bourbon
1/2 oz vermouth
dash of bitters
Stir [or shake it up] over ice, strain and serve with a cherry [what? no apple? the nerve of New Yorkers]!
[tomorrow I'll be back with a retro rhubarb recipe, so be sure to stalk me - har, rhubarb humor]
