Notes

Funky cherry fruit punch with a herbal bitter finish.

History

This is a refreshing riff on the Enzoni by Vincenzo "Enzo" Errico which incorporates daiquiri with fresh cherries instead of a gin sour with grapes. A smashable summer drink that I go to whenever cherries are in season!

  • Good but too bitter and rum is a bit too funky. I'll try with appleton next. Worth fiddling with, love the idea.

Comments

Funny enough I experimented with Plantation 5, Bacardi 8, Appleton, and settled on S&C because I figured rum enthusiasts here would prefer the funkier higher proof kick. This might be smoother:
1-1⁄2 oz Aged rum (Appleton?)
1⁄2 oz Campari
3⁄4 oz Lime juice
3⁄4 oz Simple syrup
5 muddled cherries
