Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - FOOD AND DRINK -

AS we say good­bye to the bloom of the cherry blos­som tree for an­other year, we cel­e­brate its beauty in this sweet and sour cock­tail.

The drink takes its name from the rich cherry brandy, its in­tense red colour en­riched by the sweet­ness of the dense grena­dine syrup.

With the sharp­ness of the lemon juice added to the mix, this re­ally is a drink to please the taste­buds but be­ware as it packs a punch!

Fill a shaker tin with ice and add one and half shots brandy, half shot cherry brandy, one and half shots triple sec, one and a half shots grena­dine syrup, and two tea­spoons of lemon juice.

Shake, strain and pour into a mar­tini glass. As an ad­di­tion for those who en­joy the ex­tra sweet taste of cherry, moisten the glass with the cherry brandy and rub glass rim with pow­dered sugar.
