In all our recipe development work, we found that cherries and Batch 22 Classic Gold aquavit play very well together and we wanted to craft a cocktail that would really satisfy the cherry lover. Turns out, we think it’ll also just satisfy the lover. Not too sweet, this drink has layers of flavor and just a touch of sparkle.
Shake over ice:
4 oz. Batch 22 Classic Gold
4 oz. tart cherry juice
2 tbsp. fresh lime juice
2 tbsp. simple syrup
Strain into large coupes or martini glasses
To the glasses, add:
1/4 cup ginger beer (half to each glass)
1/4 cup tonic (half to each glass)
Morello cherries in syrup for garnish.
