  • 3 Gourmet Maraschino Cherries


      1. Pour all of the ingredients together with the ice in a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously for 20 seconds.

      1. Rub orange peel around the rim of the glass and discard.

      1. Add the ice sphere inside of your serving glass and strain the cocktail over it.

      1. Scoop one cherry to place inside the drink and add two more on a twig or cocktail stirrer to garnish the glass!

  • This recipe serves 1.

  • You can replace the cherries with some blueberries or blackcurrants if you really can’t get a hold of cherries! We did that and it still looks and tastes amazing… You could also replace the maraschino cherries with regular fresh ones if you desire. Even blackberries or mulberries should look nice instead of the cherries.

Tip: The way you choose to decorate your drink it’s up to you, but we love the way it’s pictured here.
