Comment:

Sweet brandy meets dry cherry eau-de-vie in this serious vodka laced cocktail.

About:

We have David Wondrich to thank for discovering this drink, believed to be the first vodka cocktail to appear in print. He found it in a 1911 book called Beverage Deluxe and the drink itself is thought to originally come from the St. Charles Hotel in New Orleans, USA.
