Skillshare Sour

This is a fairly basic tequila sour, with the cherry, orange bitters and fernet adding more complex flavours to the lemon and syrup. (Originally, I was going to make this with bourbon, hence the bottle in the picture.)

1 1/2 oz Tequila
3/4 oz simple syrup
juice of 1/2 a lemon (about 3/4 oz)
2 cherries
3 dashes orange bitters
(Optional) a few drops Fernet Branca, to rinse

Chill a champagne coupe. Muddle one of the cherries with a bit of cherry brine. Add in a few dashes of orange bitters.

(Optional) rinse your coupe with a bit of fernet (I got a spray bottle to mist it with so there's less waste).

Strain your cocktail into the coupe. If (like me) you forget to do the rinse, spray some fernet over the drink instead.
