Today’s post is from SB Birmingham Editor Catherine Romero:

 

Whether you’re a Daniel Boone or a Dick Cheney, an Annie Oakley or the Greek goddess Artemis, after the thrill of the hunt back at the lodge when the adrenalin has died down, a recap of the day’s events over a stiff drink is in order. This ritual warrants just the right cocktail, so today we bring you a Hunter and Huntress libation that will warm you up from the inside out, whether you are emerging from a day in the woods, or laying down your spear on a Friday night after a long work week!

The Hunter’s version is super simple. Start with an old-fashioned glass filled with ice. Add in whiskey and cherry brandy. Garnish with a maraschino cherry.
