The New Ryder Side Car
In a heavy, chilled old fashioned/rocks/tumbler glass combine the bitters and sugar cube, add a thick wedge of blood-orange and a brandied Amarena cherry, then muddle. Work the fruit and sugar into a thick paste without bruising the orange peel (thereby releasing bitterness). Muddle the flesh. Add the cognac. Stir. Fill the glass with crushed or shaved ice, gild with Grand Marnier (float on top) and serve.
