New cocktail: Cherryo

cheerioCherryo

1 ½ oz Kirschwasser (I used Hiram Walker, go better if you can afford it)
1 oz Cherry Heering (fka Peter Heering, I used to scour NYC area liquor stores for old bottles, due to the fact that the distributor had some beef with the importer, and no one gave a fuck about old brands back then, anyway)
1 oz tart cherry juice (I buy elite naturel, the stuff from Turkey readily available in most upper crust NYC supermarkets)
½ oz lemon juice (squeeze it or at least buy RealLemon)
(optional) couple dashes of club soda (this is an intense drink, not all cherry cheer, but a lot of seedy, pitty elements from the kirschwasser. You may want to thin it out a tad)
Shake well, serve on the rocks. Ponder the crisis in Ukraine
