Jamie Boudreau · Vessel Seattle mixologist Jamie Boudreau of Vessel named this drink after a sweet he ate as a child in his native Canada, a chocolate bonbon filled with a syrup-soaked maraschino cherry. His interpretation is more sophisticated, with vibrant cherry aromas and a subtle chocolate flavor.
