Beautiful Cherries came in to my bodega today. They are in season somewhere! I love the variety of fresh fruit and veg we get here in NYC. I feel I may have become spoiled.
This drink is a light aperitif drink for this sunny winter's day. I wanted to play more with a sweeter Bianco vermouth, a hard to find but worthwhile ingredient. Its used with great success in a few drinks at The Beagle.
1/2 Maraschino liqueur
3/4 Lemon juice
3/4 Cizano Bianco
1 1/2 Bitter Truth Sloeberry Bluegin
Dash Bitter Truth Lemon bitters
Muddle fresh pitted cherries (2-3) with bitters and maraschino. Add rest of ingredients and ice. Shake and pour entire contents in old fashioned glass. Top with fresh cherry.
