Tropical Cocktail

It may seem antithetical to suggest a tropical cocktail that has no juices and is composed solely of liqueurs. But this drink succeeds in being tropical--a sort of liqueur Tutti Fruity with no actual fruit. It is also sweet, with creme de cacao and maraschino liqueur. That doesn't make it a bad idea. Just don't make it your first drink of the night. It is suited to a dessert, much like the liqueurs that compose it.
  • 2 oz. creme de cacao
  • 1 1/2 oz. maraschino liqueur (use Luxardo)
  • 1 1/2 oz. dry vermouth
  • dash Angostura bitters
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
