Frequently when people hear the name ‘cherry-flavored brandy’ they imagine a sickly sweet liquid that is quite overpowering and akin to cough syrup. However, this spirit actually brings fresh flavor and subtle richness to a cocktail with delicate hints of ripe cherry. Try a brand like Cherry Heering or Cherry Marnier which use natural flavoring.


  • 1 ounce gin
  • 3/4 ounce cherry flavored brandy
  • 3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 ounce dry vermouth
  • 1 dash orange bitters
  • Lemon twist to garnish


  1. Place all of the ingredients into a cocktail shaker.
  2. Fill the shaker with ice and then shake the mixture vigorously for 30 seconds to chill.
  3. Strain the mixture into a cocktail glass, add the lemon twist garnish and then serve immediately.
