"I'm jumping in with both feet on the lemon twist versus cherry debate," says Jackson Cannon of the garnish on this New Orleans classic. "I have a strong preference for a lemon twist to help balance the cocktail and magnify its flavors. Having said that, some of my dear friends prefer the cherry. I'm always happy to oblige." Classic Cocktail Recipes
