Ingredients
  • 5 cherries pitted
  • 1 slice orange
  • 2 tsp. superfine sugar
  • 2 sprigs thyme
  • 2 oz. whiskey
  • 5 oz. club soda
Instructions
  1. Place 3 cherries, 1/2 of the orange slice, sugar, and 1 thyme sprig in the bottom of a tall glass.
  2. Use a muddler (or the end of a wooden spoon) to smash cherries and other ingredients.
  3. Add whiskey to glass and stir well.
  4. Fill glass with ice.
  5. Add club soda to glass and stir.
  6. Garnish cocktail with remaining fruit and thyme sprig.
Notes

- I used rye whiskey, but any type will work. - When muddling, avoid completely pulverizing the ingredients. Just give them a good smash (hence the name) to bring out the flavors. - Here's how to pit a cherry without a special pitter.
