The American Revolution is a cocktail that combines gin (the quintessential British liquor) with bourbon (the quintessential liquor of the USA). It is a strong cocktail that is meant to mellow as its ice melts.
- In a mixing glass, muddle orange peel with 1 oz of the gin.
- Add remainder of gin, the bourbon, bitters, and ice.
- Stir 30 seconds (until the aromatics of the liquors are awakened).
- Strain into old fashioned glass and fill with ice.
- Garnish with sour cherries.
