Cherry Sour Cocktail Recipe

Berry Tempting: Cherry Sour

Aida Mollenkamp's blog and came across two wonderful cocktail recipes. She was celebrating the launch of the Cooking Channel and her new show, Food Crafters. Since they both had cherries, this month's featured fruit, I took a closer look to see what other ingredients the drinks involved. Luckily, I happened to have all of the elements for the cherry sour at home! It's a fruity, well-balanced cocktail with a wonderful complexity that I thoroughly enjoyed. The addition of Campari makes it a delightful aperitif that pairs well with chunks of Parmesan cheese and peppered salami. To give her cocktail a try, check out the easy recipe now.
