Cherryman Cran Cocktail

Cherry and Cranberry just sounded good this evening. We had ham and leek empanadas with a fig, blue cheese, walnut salad. We were thinking the zing would nicely cut through it all and keep pace with the fig and vinegar from the salad. I had this small bottle of Cranberry concentrate that is the equivalent to tomato paste vs a can of crushed tomatoes. Just a little adds a really beautiful punch. I stirred in a natural Maraschino Cherry (not the florescent red ones…. but they have their place)

This turned out so great. I think using Rum and Vodka was a good call. Also we used Ginger Ale to add some fizz and a little zing of ginger. The color is also captivating…as long as it stays in the glass and not your carpet or couch. I was thinking it would be a good looking party cocktail but on second thought the stain factor would be high. So you judge for yourself if your friends and family are capable of avoiding spills.

Ingredients
3 oz of Rum
3 oz of freezer stored Titos Vodka
Ginger Ale
R.W Knudsen Cranberry Concentrate
Cherryman Farm to Table Maraschino Cheeries www.cherryman.com

Muddle the cherry and then add Rum vodka and a shot of Cranberry concentrate and top with ginger ale.
