Comments

Delicious. It tastes, unsurprisingly, like brandied cherries. The grapefruit juice adds a slight acidity and lightness.


Good stuff. Used a cheaper Spanish brandy and just ran out of Pedro Ximénez but had a sweet vermouth that is Pedro Ximénez based. Also don't stock Cherry Heering to keep the bar smaller but I tried to get my brandied cherry syrup recipe to stand in for it, so poured that in.
