Cocktail Hour: The French Seam

Mmmmm. This is one of our favorites. (did I say that last month?)
We first tried them at my birthday party in February and they were a big hit.
Lisa even said she woke up the next day craving another one…now that’s a well crafted beverage!

  I always thought I didn’t like gin,  but maybe I just didn’t like tonic because I LOVE it in this drink.

ingredients:

gin
fresh lemon juice
maraschino liqueur
Creme de Violette
bing cherries
cherry juice
lemon twist

recipe:

(tip: keep all the ingredients refrigerated so you don’t need to water it down with ice at all!)

In each class put:

one cherry (these no dye Bada Bing cherries are amazing!)
