Happy Hour: Chica Cherry Cocktail
Sep 23, 2011
First off, this gown far exceeds the usual Happy Hour prices. Secondly, it’s totally worth it.
This gorgeous chocolate brown is simply dripping with sequins. It would be perfect for a Fall event. I also love that they styled it with modern accessories, a leather clutch and a bold ring.
The Tennessee Cherry Cocktail is an Autumn and Winter staple at my dinner parties. Sometimes, I serve it with a coconut ice cream or cream gelato from Dolcezza and save myself the trouble of making dessert. It makes everyone happy.
Six fresh or frozen pitted dark cherries
1.5 Cups Jim Beam Red Stag, cherry-infused whiskey
One Teaspoon Cocoa Powder, I like unsweetened
.5 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract, good quality, not McCormick from the spice aisle
In a 10- to 12-ounce old fashioned glass, muddle cherries, whiskey, syrup, and vanilla with a fork. Add ice.
This is not a recipe to be made in large batches. It’s best to just line up the glasses and make them individually. Sometimes multiplication just isn’t your cocktail’s friend.
