summer camp

3/4 oz cherry heering*

3/4 oz root liquor

3/4 ramazzotti amaro

soda

 

combine in a tall glass over ice and top with soda.  cherry garnish

 

tastes like innocence and sunshine, if by that i mean cherry coke, which in this case i do.  original name was a popped cherry coke, but i decided that was a touch vulgar. we just got the root liquor in the bar not long ago (it tastes like root beer or, if i have the story right, root beer tastes like it), and i’ve been wanting to find something fun to do with it.  bit on the sweet side, at least for my usual mixological bent, but even i have a place in my heart for fufu drinks that don’t taste like alcohol sometimes.

 

*in the bar, i’ve been using bourbon we were soaking cherries in for the last three months, but honestly it’s six of one, half dozen of the other in this case.
