Then add 3 ice cubes and 1/3 of the whiskey, stir 30 times.
Add 3 more ice cubes and 1/3 of the whiskey, stir 30 times.
And finish by repeating the same operation a third time.
Place the stirrer into the glass and zest both orange and lemon over the drink and drop them as the maraschino cherry into the glass.
