July 12, 2010 (Day 163) — Rendezvous

A meeting. A meeting. A chance encounter. A tirst. A fling. A…


3 oz gin

1.5 oz cherry brandy

.5 oz Campari

.5 oz Luxardo maraschino liqueur

Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker, shake, then strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a fresh cherry.

A sweet cherry taste, with a very pleasant burn. The earthiness of the Luxardo and Campari combine to create an excellent cherry taste, with the brandy adding a little bit sweetness. Dark, and a little bit heavy and surprising spice. A great fling.

But, let’s keep this just between us, for now. This little bit of serendipity. This, rendezvous if you will.

Entre nous.
