Amarena Cherry Dark & Stormy


We still have Amarena Cherries around since making our olive oil & almond flour cake for Mother's Day. The delicious fruit along with this gloomy spring weather inspired us to create this tart & sharp twist on the classic Dark & Stormy cocktail. Cheers!

For the cherry-ginger syrup, in a small sauce pan combine reserved cherry liquid and ginger honey. Over medium heat, bring mixture to a simmer and allow to reduce for 2-3 minutes. Cool syrup to room temperature and store in an air tight container.

For the cocktail, in a cocktail shaker combine bourbon, syrup, and lime juice. Fill shaker with ice and shake vigorously. Fill a rock glass with ice, then strain in cocktail. Add a splash of soda water, then garnish with a skewer of cherries and crystalized ginger.
