Works well in place of Angostura in a Manhattan or Old Fashioned. It plays really well with bourbon in general. Also nice in things like a corpse reviver where there's an acidic component that could use some counterplay. Also a touch of it in a French 75 could be an interesting complement.
Play with it. Or come hang out with me and we can figure something out.
1 Smashed Brandy Soaked or Maraschino Cherry
3 oz Rye or Bourbon
3/4oz Sweet Vermouth
4-5 drops Biters.
Muddle Cherry, shake whiskey with ice and vermouth until incorporated, strain into glass with 1 large ice cube, top with bitters.
1 Sugar Cube
1 Wide peel of orange
1 Brandied or Maraschino Cherry
3oz Rye or Bourbon
splash of water
Soak sugar cube with bitters and allow it to begin to dissolve. Muddle water, orange peel, cherry, bitters and sugar cube. top with whiskey.

My new job has the longest spec for a blood and sand I've ever seen, and it is DELICIOUS.1.5 black grouse, 3/4 each sweet vermouth, oj, and cherry heering.
You don't work at Lula Cafe in Chicago do you. They use a similar formulation, and it is indeed delicious. They also sear and flame an orange peel for dramatic effect.
