Monkey Wrench Recipe

The monkey wrench is an adjustable wrench sometimes referred to as a pipe wrench. It had also been called a Ford wrench because of its inclusion in the tool kit supplied with every Ford Model A or a coach wrench for use on the odd-sized nuts of wagon wheels in 18th century England.

2 dashes Angostura bitters

Maraschino cherry, to garnish
