Cherry Bakewell Sour

Discombobulated, such strange word, both in its sound and use. I am yet to hear someone say they feel ‘combobulated?’


Anyway, this cocktail was born from one of those moments. I couldn’t grip why my work wasn’t just flowing. In those times I seek inspiration to fuel my own creative drive. I have been fascinated by Rachel Korinek’s New York Sour, it’s just so beautiful. But the flavours just aren’t for me.


So, I made this, it’s everything I need in a drink, basically pie….

So, make it and think of Mr Kipling Days gone by.


Ingredients:


50ml Amaretto

40ml Lemon Juice

10ml Sugar Syrup

30ml Cherryade

Maraschino Cherries to Garnish
