Fancy Free Recipe

Wes Rowe

Erik Lombardo at Maialino in NYC introduced us to this classic cocktail, which is basically an Old Fashioned sweetened with maraschino liqueur (we used Luxardo) and fancied up with a big spiral of an orange twist. "The earthy funk of the liqueur adds a wonderful depth to the bourbon, a perfect introduction to cold weather," says Lombardo.
