1 lump sugar
1 dash Peychaud bitters
1 dash Angostura bitters
½ jigger whiskey
½ jigger Italian vermouth (dry vermouth)
1 slice lemon peel

Drop a lump of sugar in a barglass, moisten with a very little water, dash on it the bitters, and crush (the sugar lump) with a barspoon.  Add the rye whiskey (don’t use Bourbon) and then the vermouth.  Drop several lumps of ice into the glass and stir.  After straining into a cocktail glass, twist a bit of lemon peel over the mixture to extract the atom of oil, drop in a maraschino cherry with a very little of the sirup.
