Cocktail: The Commodore | Bartender Hugh Leech

My inspiration for this cocktail was my father, who spent his life in the Navy, both United Kingdom and Australian. He spent time serving in Gibraltar, and also near the Italian border, which inspired the use of sherry and maraschino and Cynar, as well as all over the world, from Canada to West Africa and all over Australia.
