DIY – Cocktail Cherries


I was recently inspired by a article featuring Daniel Shoemaker’s delicious brandied cherries. With my love for DIY projects and my sincere dedication to the art of cocktails, I spent a Sunday making his recipe. Give it a try and use them as a garnish in an Aviation Cocktail or as a homemade gift. Not a bad way to spend the afternoon!



Try the Aviation Cocktail garnished with your homemade cherries.
