Sips and Sounds, Volume 14

Vol. 14
The Sip: Muddy Hymnal 
The Sound: Iron and Wine, The Creek Drank the Cradle

I hadn't listened to this favorite in forever and was amazed at how well it stands the test of time. Not to mention, it sounds especially beautiful on vinyl. The idea of a wine cocktail didn't sound particularly appealing to me, but I felt like it would be a missed opportunity with such a literal booze reference in the name of the band. Good thing I went for it because the cocktail was delicious!

Muddle a few cherries in the bottom of your shaker (I used morello cherries from a jar). Add 1 oz bourbon, 2 oz red wine (any kind you like), a spoonful of fig jam and a dash of bitters. Shake well with ice and pour over a mesh strainer into your glass.
