Given that I just bought myself a lovely bottle of Old English Gin on my way home from work, I thought I would try my hand on a concoction of my own making:
- 6 cl gin
- 1.5 cl cherry wine - I used Frederiksdal Nielstrupmark 2009
- 0.75 cl Amaretto
- 0.75 cl Maraschino liquor
- 5 Maraschino cherries
My drink almost had too much dilution because I realized too late, that opening a bottle of Old English Gin involves cutting a think seal of the bottle and using a cork screw. But what a lovely gin it is - and this cocktail is a wonderful fall taste of summer.
Seltzers or tonic could easily be added for a highball.
