Mixology Monday LXXIV - Cherry
Singapore Gin Sling, Blood and Sand and the Aviation wouldn't be the same without them. They are brilliant in pies, go great with pork dishes and may even be a super food able to combat insomnia.
But cherries in cocktails are also horribly abused, few things taste worse than artificial cherry aroma and the description of how most maraschino cherries are made can make you sick to your stomach.
So it's my pleasure as the host of Mixology Monday number 74 to challenge you to honor the humble cherry.
However you choose to do that, is entirely up to you. You could use Maraschino Liqueur, Cherry Heering, Kirchwasser, Belgian Kriek Beer, cherry wine or any spectacular infusions invented by you in a cocktail. Or make your own maraschino cherries for a spectacular garnish.
Whatever you choose, here is how to participate:
Post your drink on your blog, or on egullet’s spirit and cocktail’s forum if you don’t have one, with a picture, the recipe list, and any thoughts on the drink or theme.
Add the MxMo logo to your post with a link to the Mixology Monday website, and one to my Ginhound blog.
Finally comment on this post, with a link to your entry, or you can email me at andreadoria56(at)gmail.com or tweet me on twitter @Husejer. Do all this by midnight on the June 17th.
