Aside from the somewhat offensive name based on a somewhat offensively named character, this is a good cocktail. This drink has two sweets and two neutral or savory components. I wanted a whiskey drink for the private eye, but it needed some rounding of the edges. Val Kilmer played Gay Perry tough but soft hearted. I also wanted to use up some of my tiny bottles.
1 oz 99 blackcherry
1 oz club soda
2 dashes bitters
No shaker needed this time around. Grab a double glass and one or two cubes of ice and you’re ready. Add all ingredients to your glass. Swirl slightly. Sip and solve a crime.
