Easy Cherry Cocktail Recipe: Scarlet Harlot

Berry Tempting: Scarlet Harlot

Whether it's straight up and chilled, or on ice with orange, any excuse to drink Dubonnet is a good one. I feel like it could be 1925 and I'm drinking at a bar in Lyon with Ernest Hemingway. With its notes of clove and sweet spice, Dubonnet Rouge is an ideal match for Summer's ripe red fruit. My new favorite way to enjoy it is in a cocktail with muddled Bing cherries, brandy, and bitters; the cocktail reminds me of a cherry bounce old fashioned, only brighter, and with a bigger kick. Make the most of your cherry stash when you read on.
