  • Made it with bing cherries. Looks like it'll be bright and fruity, but it's actually dark and boozy.

I like this, but I suspect it would be just as good stirred with ice and strained. My bad elbow doesn't much like shaking!

One day later: yep - really nice stirred with ice and served up. Saves all that faffing about bashing ice, too.
