Creole Lady

The Creole Lady is really a lot like a Manhattan with sherry substituted for the sweet vermouth. The recipe in the New York Bartender's Guide calls for one red and one green cherry, but who has both on hand anyway. If you have them, good on you! You can make the drink look pretty. I used this nice sunset as a backdrop, though.
  • 2 oz. bourbon
  • 1 1/2 oz. Madeira (Cossart and Gordon used)
  • 1 tsp. grenadine
  • red maraschino cherry
  • green maraschino cherry
Combine all ingredients except cherries in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with the cherries.
