If you love the thought of cherry and almond then this gorgeous cherry gin cocktail could be exactly what you’re looking for.

The drink draws its beautiful colouring fromĀ Maraschino liqueur. Made from the stones and fruit of the Marasca cherry, it pairs perfectly with gin and can even be used in a martini to add an extra layer of sweet almond-like flavour.

The focus here is on a simpler sleeker drink that allows the flavours of the Maraschino and your favourite gin to shine.

Equal measures make it easy to mix up a batch in advance for an introductory party drink that ticks that sweet spot between herbal, sharp and sweet.

Just remember to add a dash of simple syrup and you’re done!
