For some reason, I'm having difficulty remembering. I've got a photo of the ingredients, but some advice on exactly how to combine them would be appreciated.

    @FrédéricHamidi While normal Cocktailcrafting questions would belong on Seasoned Advice, this question can only really be answered by employees of Stack Exchange. – fredley Feb 28 '14 at 10:50

The Stack Overflow is just the classic Orange Blossom with a Maraschino cherry for garnish. This recipe calls for equal parts of each ingredient. For a standard cocktail, that would be:

Prep Time: 3 minutes
Total Time: 3 minutes
Yield: 1 Cocktail

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 ounce gin
  • 3/4 ounce sweet vermouth
  • 3/4 ounce orange juice
  • 1 Maraschino cherry

Preparation:

  1. Pour the ingredients into a mixing glass with ice cubes.
  2. Stir well.
  3. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
  4. Add Maraschino cherry.

Cheers!

    Please note that my "Cheers" should not be considered a salutation. It is a suggestion. – Ben Lee Mar 7 '14 at 2:51

  • @TRiG, I'm surprised your system still runs on gin. We have diesel now. – Frédéric Hamidi Apr 29 '14 at 22:38

It's simple: In order to create your own "Stack Overflow" cocktail, you have to create your own "Stack Overflow" cocktail!
