My take on the Casino Cocktail – one of my favorites and a great cocktail to turn non-gin drinkers on to gin. Who knew I liked gin!
– Tony Abou-Ganim

½ oz Luxardo maraschino liqueur
1½ oz fresh lemon sour (2 parts fresh lemon juice, 1 part simple syrup)
2-3 dashes of orange bitters
3 Luxardo brandied cherries
In a mixing glass of a Boston shaker, add gin, maraschino liqueur, fresh lemon sour, and orange bitters; shake with ice until well chilled. Strain into a chilled cocktail coupe; garnish with 3 brandied cherries and a splash of the brandied cherry juice.
