russian cocktail

this is believed to be the first vodka cocktail to appear in print. more importantly, it is delicious and a very good way to use any homemade kirsch you have knocking around…

to make, shake with ice, 1 ½ shots vodka, ¾ of a shot of cherry brandy, ¼ of a shot of kirsch. strain into a martini glass and serve with a maraschino cherry to garnish (or not).
