Inactive Prep:
1 serving


  • 1 1/2 parts Maker's Mark (R) Bourbon
  • 1/2 part peach puree
  • 3/4 part sweet red vermouth
  • Dash Liquid Kitchen (TM) Golden Era or orange bitters
  • 3/4 part splash brut champagne
  • Gold Gilded Cherries
  • 1/2 cup maraschino cherries, drained well, then dry on paper towels
  • 1/4 tsp. Gold Luster Dust (available at cake decorating stores or on-line)


Fill a mixing glass with ice. Measure in the Maker's Mark (R) Bourbon, peach puree and vermouth. Add a dash of bitters. Cap and shake. Strain into large martini glass. Add a splash of champagne.

Garnish with gold gilded maraschino cherry on a pick.

Make the cherries in the container in which you are going to store them. It is important that the cherries are well drained. Place the cherries in the container, and add the luster dust. Stir gently to coat cherries in gold. Store refrigerated for up to 3 days.
