Cherry Blossom

2 oz Gin, Hendrick's
1 oz Maraschino Liqueur, Stock
1 oz Lemon juice
2 ds Peychaud's Bitters
Shake, strain, straight up, cocktail glass
Nice pink color. Fred Yarm on Cocktail Virgin suggests that Luxardo is more vibrant than Stock. Using a bit less lemon and liqueur when substituting might be appropriate.
From other users
  • Gin- sweet, sour
  • I think subbing a dash of cherry bitters would improve the flavour and bring it more in line with the theme while retaining the beautiful pink hue. — ☆☆☆
  • Plum bitters
  • Went with 2 dr cherry bitters. Next time, 1 dr cherry, 1 dr Peychaud's. — ☆☆☆

Sweet-tart flavored. We used

Sweet-tart flavored. We used Luxardo and Bulldog Gin. Stirred, not shaken (sorry, Mr. Bond!). A nice drink with a pretty pinkish-red hue. It definitely looks like the cherry blossoms that will pop out soon here in the Washington, DC, area.

I found my source reference

I found my source reference and added it. You can read the comparison between Luxardo and Stock. I've never tried Stock, so I can't comment, but using a bit less of both Lemon and Luxardo might be a good idea. I did raise an eyebrow at a full ounce of Maraschino! I plan to try this myself soon. With that much lemon, I think it might be best shaken.
