The Spyglass, from Meaghan Dorman at Raines Law Room in New York City, is the essence of a cherry cordial candy, made light and effervescent with the addition of light rum, fresh lemon juice, and fizzy sparkling white wine (drier is better here).
Muddle the cherries in a cocktail shaker. Add the remaining ingredients (except the sparkling white wine) and ice. Shake vigorously, and then double-strain into a chilled coupe glass. Top with the sparkling white white and garnish with a fresh or brandied cherry.
